Troubleshooting Lacerte diagnostic ref. 35223 - You are attempting to e-file FAE-170 for Tennessee

by Lacerte Tax 2023 Updated 7 months ago

The following diagnostic is generating:

  • e-file: You are attempting to e-file Form FAE-170 for Tennessee and the form is not part of this return.  Please verify that form FAE-170 is part of the tax return or remove the Tennessee return from the e-file inventory by un-checking the Tennessee Franchise check box in screen 1. (ref. #35233)

This diagnostic generates when the Tennessee Franchise box is marked on Screen 1, Client Information under the Electronic Return section, but the FAE-170 isn't actually generating.

The FAE-170 generates when there's a single-member limited liability company (SMLLC) present in the return—and the SMLLC is sourced to TN.

Follow these steps to clear the diagnostic:

  1. Go to Screen 1, Client Information.
  2. Scroll down to the Electronic Return section.
  3. Unmark the checkbox labeled Tennessee Franchise.
