I thought business e-filing is supposed to open today.  There aren't any new software updates today and the forms are still watermarked.   Does anyone know the timeline?

Evidently Intuit doesn't know the timeline.  Someone posted a similar issue with ProSeries.

As a side note, the ProSeries returns do convert for e-filing.

My forms are watermarked in Lacerte with "do not file."  Do your forms not have this watermark?

I don't do Lacerte, but maybe someone else can provide some guidance

It just kinda leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat, doesn't it?

Keep in mind that just because Intuit is accepting e-filed business returns, that does NOT necessarily mean that all of the forms are ready.  It is possible that some forms may not be ready for several weeks.

https://lfs.intuit.com/#/s/US/C largely says forms will be ready 1/26/2021.
I interpret that as go ahead and e-file prior year, but the 2020 ain't ready yet.

So when can I e-file a 2019 1040 in Lacerte?

You can e-file 2019 1040 as soon as you can e-file 2017, 2018 or 2020.
