<P>I also have this same issue, in addition, California requires that I e-file based on a previous year, but TurboTax desktop will not let me file-by-mail for federal and e-file for state. Am I stuck until one of these are patched?</P>

<P>I am having the exact same problem. Earlier in the year (mid February) &nbsp;I do not believe I was having this problem as it &nbsp;appeared that all the checks were successful and I stopped short of efiling &nbsp;as I was waiting for one more 1099 to arrive. Now it appears that I can not efile. I get a screen that says I need to fix this problem during the 'complete check' review, which I do not recall seeing before.&nbsp;</P>

<P>It seems counterproductive to have everyone with this issue (4 people so far) contact support individually. It would be best if Support can update this thread directly so that everyone following it is aware of the latest.</P>

<P>I am experiencing the exact same issue.&nbsp; I do not have any issue with 1099-DIV.&nbsp; I live overseas and all income is foreign-earned.&nbsp; I have e-filed many years with no issue, but when I try to file this year I get the same error message stating Turbotax can't handle AMT simplified method for Form 1116, requiring paper filling.&nbsp; Clearly there is a glitch.&nbsp; This is extremely frustrating and really the customer service being provided has been extremely unhelpful/unsupportive</P>

<P>Same -- Calling from overseas at great expense.&nbsp; No one can provide assistance except to say, perhaps try deleting form 1116 and all inputs and try to manually complete the form again.&nbsp; Extremely frustrating as you are unable to make an electronic payment without e-filing, and living overseas limits the ability to make electronic payments without huge fees</P>

<P>It looks like that same issue is being discussed on <A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/taxes/discussion/re-e-file-rejected-due-to-foreigntaxespaidoraccrueddt-on-form-1116/01/2103354" target="_self">this thread</A>. However, that's a super long thread that seems to discuss several different issues at the same time, so it's quite confusing. It's marked as Solved, but I couldn't really see any solution there...</P>

<P>I'm a "survivor" from that thread.&nbsp; Basically, if you use the&nbsp;simplified AMT Foreign Tax Credit, TurboTax&nbsp;<STRONG>cannot&nbsp;</STRONG>efile your taxes.&nbsp; The IRS made a field required this year, and TurboTax needs to update their software to handle it, but they have decided not to (and their support is mostly&nbsp;<A href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/taxes/discussion/re-e-file-rejected-due-to-foreigntaxespaidoraccrueddt-on-form-1116/01/2064658/highlight/true#M743164" target="_blank" rel="noopener">really terrible, rude, incompetent, and liars</A>&nbsp;- they definitely won't be able to help you with this issue).&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Before a recent update, TurboTax used to allow you to actually e-file with&nbsp;simplified AMT Foreign Tax Credit, but it'd get quickly rejected by the IRS because of that required field.&nbsp; After weeks of waiting and a 15+ page thread, their "solution" was to update the software to block you from e-filing.&nbsp; Seems pretty clear to me that they're not going to fix it.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>According to the IRS, it sounds like they'll change it back next year; so hopefully it'll work again for 2021 taxes.&nbsp; Perhaps that's also why TurboTax decided not to bother fixing it&nbsp;<span class="lia-unicode-emoji" title=":face_with_rolling_eyes:">🙄</span>.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>I filed by mail earlier this week and asked TurboTax for a refund of my state e-filing fee, though it's been almost a week without a response...</P>

<P>Yes me also, Turbotax is rejecting e-filing because it says I used the simplified AMT foreign tax credit (I don't even have to pay AMT) but just having the form there is making it so I can't efile.&nbsp; Come on TurboTax, I know there are changes to IRS requirements but this one is an oversight that needs fixed for lots of people or we all have to waste paper by printing the return, mail it (hope USPS gets it there) and then wait even longer. &nbsp;&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P>

<P>I ended up just not claiming the foreign tax credit, since it wasn't a large amount and it was worth it to me to e-file. If someone is aware of other tax preparation software that is able to handle this more gracefully, that would be useful knowledge to share. Who knows if this is going to still be a problem next year.</P>

<P>I chose the "better to ask forgiveness than to ask permission" approach, filing the non-simplified AMTFTC despite the IRS rule to the contrary. &nbsp;Based on past experience, there's reasonable chance that the IRS will just auto-correct it rather than forcing me to file an amended return.</P>

<P>Regarding my decision to use the non-simplified Form 1116-AMT:</P><P>1. &nbsp;I tried looked at all three of the non-AMT, the simplified-AMT, and the non-simplified-AMT. &nbsp;Each gave a different number for the maximum allowed credit, but since all were greater than my foreign taxes it did not affect my bottom line.</P><P>2. &nbsp;The non-simplified method did not require any more input on my part than the simplified method. &nbsp;Turbotax did all the calculations, mostly involving picking some numbers from my Form 6251 instead of from my 1040 and using them in calculations with some different parameters.</P><P>3. &nbsp;My return was accepted!</P>

<P><LI-USER uid="222140"></LI-USER>&nbsp;Thanks! I went through and it also didn't affect the bottom line.

And it's not like we're cheating the IRS out of anything here, since it has no (visible) effect on anything. In fact, I'm sure we save them money by not having to deal with a complex paper return manually.</P>

<description>
<P>On the other thread, a number of us went the "ask for forgiveness rather than permission" route several weeks ago and succeeded in getting the e-filing accepted.&nbsp; The AMT carryover stayed roughly the same, and no (or very few) other changes were apparent on any form.&nbsp; Both my federal and state refunds were identical to what they were before abandoning the "simplified" option and both appeared in my checkbook within 3 or 4 days.&nbsp; If the IRS wants to pursue this calculation change, they will be coming after dozens/hundreds/thousands of TT users for filings that did not change the amount due (or to be refunded) by even one cent.</P>

<P>Great thread. I am having same problem. Return is exactly like last year but it won’t allow efiling because of the simplified AMT. (there was no AMT used last year so I wonder if TT is making an assumption about AMT with FTC?. ) &nbsp;I will try the suggestions above. I am concerned that paper filing just carries the TT glitch onto the paper for and then rejection takes 2 months of snail mail instead. Thank you.&nbsp;</P>

<P><EM>I am wondering whether it would be possible to e-file with the regular AMT and then follow-up immediately&nbsp; with correct form and amended return&nbsp; with explanation.&nbsp;</EM></P>

<P><LI-USER uid="744091"></LI-USER>&nbsp;please read through the thread. You're just stating the high level IRS rules. This is not helpful in the context of the issue we are dealing with, which is basically a TT bug.</P>

<P>Where in Turbo tax can it be changed from simplified method to a non-simplified method?&nbsp; I checked from the tax credit section and didn't get any other option. It just sending me messages at the end saying that I elected the simplified AMT foreign tax credit.&nbsp;</P>

<P><LI-USER uid="4079875"></LI-USER>&nbsp;I already filed mine, so I'm not able to go back and see exactly where it was. But as I recall, it was under Credits / Foreign Tax Credits, and then go through the questionnaire again. That was with the web version.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>Maybe someone else who has not yet filed can confirm exact steps.</P>

<P>While I understand you have to retain Simplified AMT once elected in prior years, the inability to e-file it is a TT bug (as several customers have mentioned in various threads).&nbsp; Is there any chance that bug could be fixed in the next couple of weeks? Otherwise I'll have to mail my 200 page return from Japan.</P><P>Thanks in advance</P><P>&nbsp;</P>

<P><LI-USER uid="1050279"></LI-USER>&nbsp;please see previous replies. At this point, it's exceedingly unlikely that they will fix it. Your options are to paper file, or bend the rule and not use the simplified method (as many of us did).</P>

<P>The TT webpage says you can't change your AMT Method without written permission from the IRS.&nbsp; Has anyone tried requesting the IRS to grant permission to change your AMT Method?&nbsp; Any idea how to request them to grant that?</P>
