Anyone getting error code 194? I got it on two unrelated tax return when trying to transmit. It says “The Canada Revenue Agency is experiencing technical difficulties and is unable to process this return at this time.”
I called and spoke to the E-file help desk and she said she has never heard of that error and the taxpayers sin number is not showing up as being rejected. She told me she has already had another preparer call this morning with the same issue.
I checked with our EFILE contact at CRA and they asked if we could contact you to get some details about these returns. This could be a database issue on CRA’s side but they would like to trace it to see what the source is; opening day. We could call you whenever that is convenient.
We asked CRA if they were aware of any other reasons that error 194 would be triggering, now that the NL issue has been addressed.
They are asking if either of the last couple cases might have and amount on line 307 of Schedule 1 in the return.
Yes, my MB return does have an amount on line 307.
Caregiver amount from adult daughter that lives with them and it is NOT a first year claim.
The S1 shows it as line 307 but the 5 year summary & FL etc shows it as line 315.
Could this be the issue?
