E-filing: 2015 Validation Error for State Identification Update

3/31/17 – 9:11am EDT

Some 2015 e-files are still receiving the State ID Validation Error. We recommending holding these impacted returns at this time. We will post additional information as it becomes available.

3/30/17 – 3:35pm EDT

When e-filing 2015 tax returns, many of you have received this Validation Error:

“The ‘http://www.irs.gov/efile:DrvrLcnsOrStateIssdIdIssDt’ element is invalid – The value ‘0001-01-01’ is invalid according to its datatype ‘http://www.irs.gov/efile:DateType’ – The Pattern constraint failed.”

Our developers have identified and resolved the issue causing the above Validation Error when e-filing 2015 returns. The fix will be pushed out tomorrow (3/31/17) morning at 8am EDT. We will update this post once we confirm the fix is live.

At this time, we recommend holding 2015 e-files until confirmation of the deploy has been posted.
