I am trying to e-file a return with the 4 Federal estimates, but I get a diagnostic that it is past the first payment date, so I need to enter -1, but it is not past the first nor the send estimate date of 7/15 and 6/15. E-file payment records print but I am not allowed to e-file. Will this be corrected or do I have to tell all my clients that pay Federal estimates that they have to mail in their first payment on 7/15?
I had the same issue:
Lacerte - Solution (Tabs)
E-File Support Tools
Disable E-File Error Diagnostic
Will allow you to bypass and proceed with e-file(s) in batch.
Submitted and awaiting acceptance.
Team reported to be working on a solution, disabling of diagnostic should only apply to returns filed immediately, system should reset for subsequent filings. Withdrawals should follow date/sequence indicated in informational diagnostic (7/15)(6/15)(9/15)(1/15).
