General Notes
Use the “Standard” version to see what the report will look like if it follows standard itemization rules. Use the “Itemize All Contributions” to efile.

The state upload system is generally good at catching duplicate transactions that have already been uploaded once. Nonetheless, we suggest you only commit one file per report.

Expense Splits and Accrued Expense Splits are not supported by the state’s upload tool.
