How do I resolve EF message 5229?

EF Message 5229 states:

INVALID SCHEDULE E SCREEN: Schedule E must have either income or expenses. Income can be entered directly on Schedule E, or can be carried from a 1099-MISC.

If the Schedule E was entered in error, delete the screen (press Ctrl+D from within the screen).

This message appears when there are no entries for either

  • Rent income,
  • Royalties from oil, gas, mineral, copyright, or patent, OR
  • ·one of the expenses fields.

To clear this message, go to screen E - Rent and Royalty Income, click on the Income/Expenses tab​, and make entries in the appropriate fields.
