Yes, there are two common errors that taxpayers and tax practitioners make when using a form with a 2D Bar Code:
If the Department receives a poor quality copy of a return with a 2D Bar Code, the information contained in the bar code cannot be electronically captured from the form. The form must be manually entered.
When changes to the form are necessary after the software product has printed the return, do not write changes by hand on the form. They will not be changed in the 2D Bar Code. Preparers should go back into the software product, make the changes, and then reprint the form so that the 2D Bar Code contains the changes.
