3rd Q 2020 Efile error

Level 1

Just checking to see if anyone has been able to reach EasyAcct regarding the following error message:

Error Code: 54

Problem: EasyAcct is updating the product for IRS 941 changes.

Solution: Please come back after 10/12/2020 to file your returns.


I was on hold for about 20 minutes this morning and gave up thinking I could check the product alerts to which there were none.

Just called the number, recording says it will be released later this week.  This is completely ridiculous.

Same issue here.  I have stacks of work that I cannot complete.  Frustrating.

The recorded message @ EASYAcct states that the Q3 2020 form 941 will be updated "hopefully later this week"; no one picked up the phone when I called.  This would also apply to a printed/mailed 941 for Q3 20, as the only version in EASY is the Q2 20. See the IRS web site for the Q3 20 version. Though only a few minor edits were made, I hesitate to e-file or mail the incorrect form.

Has the 941 form for third quarter been updated yet?

I just filed my first 3rd Qtr 2020 941 form. It seemed to work like normal, received the acknowledgement and service notice it was accepted!  Finally!!
