I suggest you ...

Form 114 cannot be filed electronically in the case of a MFS taxpayer if the spouse SSN is missing. This needs to be corrected.

In the case of a MFS taxpayer if the spouse does not have a SSN then the filing of FinCen 114 electronically is stopped. This did not occur last year in the program and should be corrected for 2017 and later. The FinCen 114 is very much an individual's form and should not be affected by the spouse's information. It is common that foreign nationals working in the US have to file separately from the spouse because the spouse remains in the foreign country and does not have a SSN etc. There is a temporary work around I discovered which is to change the filing status to single temporarily in order to submit the 114 and then change it back after submitted. But this is rather inconvenient Thanks for helping on this issue if you possibly can.
