Issue Description Tentative Fix Date
Form 1116 – XML Schema Validation Errors
For tax year 2020, IRS made parts of Form 1116 required
entry fields, when they should have remained optional.
Free File Fillable Forms does not have a workaround for
many of these errors. 
You should find an alternate method
of efiling or print and mail the return.
The form will be changed in tax year 2021,
making the parts optional again.
