Efile individual state return after federal return was efiled and amended

Level 1

Clients individual federal return was amended and efiled.  However, the individual state return was never filed .  Trying to now efile the state return and Lacerte Tax will not process the state return (state return was not amended only federal).  Is there a way I can get the individual state (CA) return filed through efile or will it have to be paper filed?  Thank you.

CA is a standalone state; you should be able to e-filed the CA return independently of federal.

On Screen 1, under Electronic Return, did you uncheck Federal while leaving California checked?  If so, what diagnostic did you receive?

Thank you for your response.  Yes, I have unchecked the federal box on screen and removed the default of efiling returns in the user options.

When I select this return, I get this error message

 

Unable to e-file return

The following clients will not be included in the e-file return processing.  Refer to the client note for explanation on why the client is being excluded.

Client note:   You are attempting to efile a US amended return Please select the Amended return wizard to efile an amended return.

--- The California return was never filed, and is not an amended return?
