Failed Validation Error Code 54

Getting a Failed Validation Code in TurboTax Business when trying to file trust returns.  Tried making sure I had all updates.  Then tried uninstalling and reinstalling Turbo Tax Business.  Still getting the same message.  Any solutions to this?  Thank you!!!

Same thing is happening to me, for a trust return.  I think this is a TurboTax issue that they will need to fix.  I'm going to give it a day or two and see if they hop on it.

I had the same problem and just got this to work thanks to, CatinaT1

I turned off the Windows Virus and Threat Protection features in the Control Panel.  

I got both 1041 and CA 541 to efile.

 

Good luck.

  TO ACTIVATE MY 2022 TURBO TAX PROGRAM......

 

activation code on sales receipt from Best  Buy is 25 characters long.   Entry on computer calls for a 16 character number ?      What is wrong here?   Now what do I do, since I have paid for your product ?
