Release notes

This release fixes 2 PLS rejections and 1 validation error that happens in a 2020 Individual tax return and after updating to 2020.2:

  • CMN.ATO.GEN.XML03 & CMN.ATO.GEN.XML04: This rejection occurs if the Dividends schedule when it is pre-filled from the ATO and there's no manual dividends entry.
  • CMN.ATO.DDCTNS.000155: This rejection occurs if there are no deductions in a 2020 tax return and a $0 is automatically populating at D1, which cant be deleted. If there is an amount at another deductions label, the rejection does not occur.

    After you've installed this hotfix, open and close the schedule at D1 to refresh.

  • IITR.301106: This F3 validation error occurs incorrectly where there is a foreign employment income schedule (fei) and amounts in the deductions items, and no Australian salary and wages (egc) schedule.
