FYI, I do not think this is a state delay issue.  I gave up last week trying to efile via Lacerte since the error message directs you to the status of efiling and they have an unknown date available.  I went to the Texas Comptroller website and webfiled the return.  I had absolutely not one single issue electronically filing this.  I am also not hearing from anyone using other tax software vendors that are having delays in Texas.  I think it's a Lacerte problem which they will not own up to.

I'm getting the same error message.  I have 4 FINAL Texas returns due Monday and can't seem to E-File any of them.  Getting same error code 1054.  On the phone with Lacerte now.  I will post back if I get any answers.

I called Lacerte this weekend.  Texas returns cannot yet be e-filed.

Did Lacerte give any time frame? Did they suggest we mail via snail mail?

Thanks!

In my case, my client already paid the tax electronically.  I thought about extending, but that didn't seem to work.

I called Texas today and they said the return could be faxed to 512-475-0433.

I wouldn't mail it. The postal service "service" is terrible.

Isn't it due May 15?

Final Returns due 60 days after year end.  Therefore FINAL returns with 12/31 year end are due today, March 1st.

Just an FYI, the Texas Comptroller extended the May 15th due date to June 15th due to the Federal disaster declaration and IRS extension for Texas taxpayers.

However, according to the agent I spoke with, this did not extend the returns due March 1st.  How does that even make sense!
