11126: CO - Rejection Because Withholding Claimed Does Not Match Total


A Colorado individual return was rejected because the withholding shown in the return didn’t match withholding on statements included with the return, but the withholding is summed correctly in the View mode of the return.

The Colorado return will have to be paper filed.

Colorado withholding from:

  • Form 1099-B, Proceeds from Broker and Barter Exchange Transactions, entered on the 8949 screen,
  • Form 1099-DIV, Dividends and Distributions, entered on the DIV screen
  • Form 1099-OID, Original Issue Discount, entered on the OID screen
  • Form 1099-INT, Interest Income, entered on the INT screen.

is not included in the state transmission file due to state electronic schema limitations. It produces this CO rejection:

Error Message: Colorado income tax withheld claimed on Form 104 line 16 must be confirmed by the state income tax amounts shown on Colorado withholding statements."  Also, you remove the 1099-INT from the message as that can now be efiled.

The error cannot be cleared to efile the return, it will need to be paper filed along with copies of the statements showing the CO withholding.
