Having problems efiling Form 1040X

Level 3

It's my understanding that today is the day we can efile 1040X through Lacerte.  I had an amended return that I was sitting on, waiting for today.  I went into the client, and marked the return for e-filing (screen 1).  Then, I tried to efile it, using the "e-file Amended Return Wizard".  The program responded that the "Client is not setup for any amended returns that can be e-filed".  

Is there something else I need to toggle here?

I don't know if today is the day or not since I use ProSeries, but I do know the day isn't over yet.  Intuit isn't in the farming business so their day doesn't necessarily start at the crack of dawn.

This week's special - free roadrunner dinner with every return (legal disclaimer - you catch it and we'll cook it)

Someone really wants to be the guinea pig if they volunteer at 6am West Coast time.  Are Lacerte developers still in Tucson?  They're on California time these days.

Has anyone seen an announcement that the IRS did, in fact, get this opened for Aug 17 as first planned? I would watch for their official announcement, first. Then, watch for your program to get a compliant update.

Ive seen preparers that use Drake say they got IRS acceptance of their 2019 1040X Efiled returns over a week ago...I figured they were the guinea pigs.

The IRS *said* they would be ready today, Aug 17th.

I haven't received notification from Lacerte as to their specific time line....

Thank you everyone, for your responses.  I will try to exercise some patience (sigh), and give it a few days to see if more information becomes available.

In the meantime, everyone stay safe and healthy.

Lacerte's FAQ on the subject currently indicates an Aug. 19th availability.

Thanks everyone for your comments and information.  As you said, be patient.  Lacerte is now accepting amended returns!
