“Dear PoPville,

I am just curious if anyone else if having issues with the DC fillable forms this year? I keep getting rejected for illogical reasons – most frustratingly is the rejection reason:

If FormD40, Line 17, ‘Exemptions’ is more than 1, Line 1 checkbox ‘Married filing jointly’ or ‘Registered domestic partner filing jointly’ or ‘Married filing separately on the same return’ or ‘Registered domestic partner filing separately on the same return’ or ‘Qualifying widow(er) with dependent child’ (element ‘DCFilingStatusType’ 2, 5, 7, 8 or 9), or if you or your spouse/registered domestic partner are over age 65 or blind, then Sch S, Calculation G must be completed and a Sch S attached

. . . yet I am “Married Filling Jointly” and only claiming 2 exemptions (one for self, and one for my spouse).

I can’t be the only MFJ filer in DC having this problem!
(and for what it’s worth, I work in the tax policy field and am 100% confident in my ability to compete the D-40).

Calling the DC OTR has proven less than helpful.”
