Troubleshooting ProConnect Tax diagnostic ref. 12525/2012253 - Taxpayer name for LLC #1 reporting entity blank

SOLVEDby Intuit1Updated July 28, 2023

The taxpayer is only reporting W-2 wages under Wages, Salaries, Tips. However, the return is generating the following two critical diagnostics:

  • Taxpayer name for the LLC #1 reporting entity must not be blank(Ref. #12525)
  • TX State Taxpayer Number entered for #1 in the Texas Franchise Tax screen must be either 9 digit FEI number or 11 digit Texas ID number. This error may delay processing of the return by the State of Texas(Ref. #2012253)

Why are these diagnostics generating?

These diagnostics generate if Texas is added to the returns state library on Client Information.

Follow these steps if the taxpayer isn't required to file the Texas Franchise Tax Report:

  1. Go to Input Return General Client Information.
  2. Leave the Resident State as of 12/31/2023 as TX.
  3. Go to the Profile tab.
  4. Delete the Texas state return by selecting the trashcan icon in the Actions column.
