I am using freefilefillableforms to submit my tax returns. After e-filing I get the business rule error F1040-414 and this means that my Schedule 8812 is missing. However I do have the Form 8812 attached and is filled but I still get this error.
I have two sons. One of them has an ITIN and the second is US citizen. In form 1010, I filled in 6c for both of them and checked the checkbox in column 4. In Form 8812, I only answered "Yes" to the question A on the substantial presence test and left everything else blank. I even tried filling in the remaining answers just to see if it made any difference but the returns are always rejected.
I have been researching over the internet for the past two weeks and even submitted question to the IRS but they keep referring me to the document on rejection reasons. The only solution for this business rule is "Missing Document".
Does anyone know what the problem is ? Your time is appreciated. Here's the reason for the rejection:
Issue : Business Rule F1040-414 - If Form 1040, Line 6c(2) 'DependentSSN' has an ITIN and Line 6c(4) checkbox 'EligibleForChildTaxCreditInd' is checked for that dependent, and Line 51, 'ChildTaxCreditAmt' has a non-zero value, then Schedule 8812 (Form 1040A or Form 1040) must be present in the return.
