1040NR Validation error: AppLawfulPermanentResidentInd

If your 1040NR return is still in the status of “Transmitted” make sure you run your Validations Errors and Old Validation Errors Report.

For this particular validation error, there are a couple of things for you to look at:

  • Navigate to the Schedule OI and make sure a country has been entered for the Citizenship country and the foreign tax residence country
  • Navigate to the Schedule OI and make sure the VISA type has been completed

1040NR – Subtraction from Wage Line Entry — Phase II

We delivered Phase II to complete the addition of the Subtraction from Wage Line Entry.

Enter your W-2 (Example below has 9,000 in Box )

Enter you Treaty Information for Schedule OI

Enter any exemption amount that should be reduced from the Wage Line:

The application will now do that math for you and reflect the information on the Summary/Print page and the PDF

Returns that need to subtract the treaty amount from the wage line must be paper filed this year.  We will display an e-file error preventing the return from being filed electronically to prevent an IRS reject.

1040NR — New Field added to Schedule OI

We delivered Phase I of a new field that will allow the preparer to enter the amount of treaty exemption that should be deducted from the wage line.

Where is the new field located?

Basic Information >> 1040NR Schedule OI>>Schedule OI General Information

What does Phase I mean?

This means that we have delivered the entry form.  Phase II will be to add the mapping and calculations behind it to subtract the amount entered from the wage line

When will Phase II be delivered?

The mapping and calculation changes are scheduled to be delivered on Wednesday, March 22nd.

How will I know when Phase II  has been delivered?

We will update the blog when Phase II is delivered.  You will also see a difference on the Summary/print page where the AGI reflects the subtraction from the wages line.

Can I electronically file the return if I enter an amount that reduces the wages?

No.  The IRS system for accepting the 1040NR is new for this tax season.  It currently does not allow returns that have wages reduced to be electronically filed.  This is something that will be considered for TY2017.

How does this impact my state return?

Using this field, will allow full amount entered in the W-2 box 1 to flow to the state for calculation purposes.

Can I edit my state return?

No, you cannot edit the state return to make any additions or subtractions from the state.  We are looking to add this functionality for TY 2017.
