EFILE ACCEPTED ACKNOWLEGEMENTS FOR NY IT203 and IT203-X or IT201 and IT201-X cannot co-exist in the efile center.


NY DOR requires tax preparers to efile all income tax returns and to efile amendments.

The intuit instructions for filing a NY amended return are essentially a confusing and painful workaround because the efile center does not permit a return to be efiled when there exists another return with the same SSN within the efile center.


This was discussed last season with Moderator Neal who agreed that “a checkbox of some sort would be easy as would a query rule of some sort for the Homebase that ignores the duplicate when it's marked as amended.”


This year moderators have advised that this is classified a product defect. Hopefully we’ll have a resolution soon.

All the suggestions are good, but the bottom line is that they are WORKAROUNDS for a PRODUCT DEFECT that the manufacturer should correct!

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
