It can't be fixed if it's not broken. Just because a date was announced yesterday doesn't mean someone just pushes a button and everything is instantly changed.

I have a signed 8879 dated March 17th, which under normal circumstances means I need to transmit the tax return today. The taxpayer told me he didn't want to pay until he had to - which now is July 15th and gave me information for a direct debit as he is forgetful and said he'd forget. I tried going ahead and transmitting an extension for him and now it only allows a payment date of June 15th. I would think this would be an easy fix for Lacerte/ProSeries to fix as it only involves one field on the database for the direct debit. In order to transmit timely, I guess I have no choice but to give him a payment voucher to mail in.
