IRS Error Code [F8868-908]:
The tax period end date of this return doesn't match with the IRS e-file database.
What does it mean?
The tax period end date in the return is incorrect. For instance, if your organization follows a calendar tax year, the tax period end date in the return should be December 31. On the other hand, if your organization follows a fiscal tax, let's say from April through March, in which case, the tax period end date would be March 31. If the return has an end date other than March 31, then the IRS will reject it.
You need the correct tax period, and re-transmit the return. Refer to this list of documents to confirm your organization's tax period.
Here's how you correct the tax period on your return:
- Log in to your account.
- On the dashboard, under Exempt Org Extensions - Form 8868, identify the rejected return.
- Click the Rejected by the IRS button found against the rejected return, you can find the list of errors associated with the return.
- Click the Fix Me button against the error code F8868-908
- You'll land on the Organization Tax Year page. Here you can correct the tax period end date.
- Review the details, and click the Transmit button to re-transmit your return to the IRS at no additional cost.
