Form 8888 — You MUST enter a $value for the first RTN/ACCT Line

If you are using the 8888 and trying to have the state deposited to a different account than the federal (because the state deposits to the first line of the 8888 when Direct Deposit is selected for the Federal).

Recommendation:  Enter the RTN/ACCT number where you want the state refund deposited first.  You MUST have part of the Federal Refund deposited to this account too.  The $value must be greater than zero

Enter the RTN/ACCT number where you want the remainder o the federal deposit on the 2nd line.  The refund total must match the federal refund.

If you DO NOT follow these steps and enter zero on the first line of the 8888, your return is located under the Validation Errors report.
