"but PS shuts down the ability to efile before that deadline"
No one anywhere stated that PS shut down the ability to efile. Don't start rumors.
System issues and maintenance issues and "conversion" that isn't anything to do with efile, is not "PS shut down" efiling. No need to rile up the masses when that isn't happening. This is Peer Users. Play nice.
"Level Up" is a gaming function, not a real life function.
