2020 Instructions for Amended Tax Returns Failing Fed and CA Return

I have followed this: https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/amend-tax-return/help/how-do-i-amend-an-individual-return-us...

 

My Federal return has 0 errors but when I click e-file I see "Federal" is ready but "Federal Amended Return" is not ready. Why is that? Am I supposed to select the "Federal" box only?1.JPG

 In CA it is telling me to uncheck the e-file box and mail it in. Why do I have to mail it in if CA is allowing amendments to be e-filed? If I have the wrong information about CA allowing form X to be e-filed please let me know. Does ProSeries still not support e-filing of a CA return?

After unchecking e-file CA and e-file CA amendment boxes I thought atleast Federal e-file amendment would work but the box is still showing "not ready". Any ideas why this is preventing me from selecting the box?

If I continue following the instructions in the link above I get this error:

What Terry said above.  You have to use the original file with the original filename as the amended return.

And CA just showed up as a choice a week or two ago, but I don't remember seeing any announcement that it was available and working, so.its possible that its not functioning yet.

sounds like you created a new file for the amendment, but you have to change the original and not create a new file. I print a pdf of original, then correct it. here are Intuit instructions:

Hi,

 

Yes in my post I followed that link. It says to save the file but name it something else. So now that I created a new file for amendment I assume to fix the issue of duplicated SSN I can just remove the e-file option on the original. Is that correct?

 

Any ideas on my other issues?

That part in red is wrong.

You want to save a copy of the original (and uncheck the EF boxes on it for both fed and state), but use the actual original file as the amended.  You cannot use the copy for the amended return.

Why would PS say "Federal return not completed" but the Federal return has 0 errors?
