14924: WI - EF Message 0069


How would I clear Wisconsin red message 0069 on an individual return?

WI EF Message 0069 states:

WI Schedule OS

Both lines 24 and 31 are equal to zero. This will result in WI DOR reject F-281 if transmitted this way. Please return to data entry and make any necessary corrections. 

​The reason this EF Message occurs is that the Wisconsin Schedule OS is used for Credit for Net Tax Paid to another state. Line 24 represents the Total Income Taxed by other state, and line 31 represents the Income and Franchise Tax. If there is not any income, or tax, the credit will not generate, and the form will not be produced.

 If they should receive the Schedule OS Credit, to correct this error message:

  • Go to the States Tab > Wisconsin > Credits Tab > Screen OS Net Tax Paid to Another State > Enter applicable amounts on this screen so that either line 24, or 31 has an amount present. 
If they are not eligible for the credit, delete the OS screen by pressing CTRL + D
