The standard excuse for the past year is delays are due to COVID-19. Is this the reason returns are not being transmitted to the IRS today, the day announced weeks ago the IRS will start processing e-file returns on February 12th including prior year individual returns?
They said they will start, but I don't know how many were already in the hopper from software companies that were holding returns that had been transmitted to them for the past couple of weeks. It's like having 200,000 people standing in line to get into a 20,000 seat stadium - they aren't all going to get in right after the gates open.
