Illinois: Return Cannot Be E-filed When The Sum Of Illinois Wages Plus Out Of State Wages On All W-2s Does Not Equal Total Wages Reported On IL Sch CR

Some Illinois filers with income from multiple states see a message that their return is not eligible for e-filing with the explanation that "Return cannot be e-filed when the sum of Illinois wages plus out of state wages on all W-2s does not equal total wages reported on IL Schedule CR".

More Information

This can occur when there is a W-2 with wages from two or more states and the total box 15 amounts, when rounded, add up to a different amount than Box 1, when rounded.

You can safely resolve this issue by adjusting the non-Illinois box 15 amount to correct the rounding difference. For example:

Box 1: 100.20
Box 15: IL - 50.60
Box 15: IN - 50.60

Can be adjusted to:

Box 1: 100.20
Box 15: IL - 50.60
Box 15: IN - 50.00
