The date entered in the "Date Signed" field on Form 1040 EF Info beneath the Practitioner and Self-Select PIN section must have the same year as the processing year of the return. For example, when signing a Tax Year 2013 return, the signature year must be at least "2014" (returns cannot be signed before the end of the tax-year).
Note: A TY2012 return, being filed in calendar year 2014 would also need a 2014 signature date.
Adjust the Signature date to be in the current processing year.
