M1PR's with UCE:
When you have a return with unemployment income on it and an M1PR, you get a warning that there is nontaxable income without a description. You can no longer set these to E-file.
If you see this error message, don't worry about it. You can set the M1PR to paper file, and we should still be able to efile the MN income tax return. I'm going to set up another return tag to try to keep track of these returns.
When you have an M1PR with zero refund, I'm asking that you upload a PDF of the M1PR to the taxpayer's Exavault file before you delete it. This will save us some time when a taxpayer is expecting a refund and asks about it.
