Line 2 The element ‘Return’ has invalid child element ‘AtlantaTaxableEnergySales’. List of possible elements expected: ‘AtlantaTaxableMV’.

This error message appears when you try to upload a return using an XML file that is in the old format. This will happen if you completed a return and generated the XML file before you updated your S-Tax software.

Fortunately, it’s an easy fix.

Print the return again after you have installed the S-Tax update, selecting “Electronically File this Return.” This will recreate the XML file in the new format.
