How do I electronically file an amended Caifornia Form 540?

Highlighted
Level 1

I need to file an amended California form 540.  Per the Franchise Tax Board they said since the original return was filed electronically I should file the amended form 540 with schedule X electronically too.

I noticed that amended return option on Proseries connect is grayed out so I am unable to file the amended return electronically.

Has anyone run into this problem?

You have tagged your question to the wrong product if ProSeries is what you use.

Based on feedback given by various other experienced ProSeries users, it is not possible to e-file CA 540 with Sch X using ProSeries even though FTB allows that.

Isn't it morning there?  Or is it tomorrow night...  It's 8:00 p.m. Left Coast of the USofA time.

I do have the most difficult time with time differences & time changes.   You'd think, being a numbers chick, that it would be easy 🤣

Mr. J is on on the Right Coast of the Left Continent, so it is probably tomorrow already. Time travel is possible.

Yes, time travel is possible.  No need for the DeLorean.

It's 11am HK time.  It's easy to go by EST, then bring it forward by 12 hours, except it'd be 13 hours when the US is on winter time.  For other time zones in the US, I'd just count back from there.

"Should" being the operative word.

If PTO doesn't allow it, then the FTB will just have to process a paper filing.

Lacerte does allow efiling a 540X,  FWIW.
