Also need to be able to update the e-file status to show accepted for those returns that actually went through during the e-file error situation. I've two clients who still show "unsent" but have an activity report that says they have been submitted already.
Just talked to a customer support agent (after 2hr on hold) and she said they are still working on fixing the acknowledgements beyond "received at lacerte" but they are still being transmitted to the IRS...so if you get that status message you will be timely filed
This worked fine for one submitted today during the e-file crisis. However, one which was transmitted 10/12/20 shows as rejected. The activity report states that a filing has been submitted already. However, no filings were submitted. If nothing else, I'll call Lacerte directly on this one.
