This selection is disabled for Correction Clients.
Account Ability can import 2020 and 2021 IRS transmittals.
If you are sure your IRS transmittal contains returns for the selected client but Account Ability complains it cannot find any, download and run the RL750 utility and try again.
If you make a mistake and need to import again, use the Kill This File selection on the Tools menu to first delete any existing returns.
