8839 Qualified Adoption Expenses

Feb 2, 2022

We are aware of an issue with the IRS schema concerning the maximum adoption credit allowed on Form 8839 Qualified Adoption Expenses.  Per the form and instructions, the maximum allowable credit is $14,440; however, the IRS schema has this value set as $14,400.  Any e-filed return that includes the maximum $14,440 will receive IRS Rejection X0000-005.  

At this time, please hold these returns until the IRS releases the next schema update which is tentatively scheduled for mid-March.

Note:  UltimateTax will display a validation error if you attempt to create the e-file for these returns.
