8879 Form, Not EF

When I create PDF of return to send to client - it water marks "Do Not File Form Not Final" on each page of 1040 (Arizona Returns Does Not). Is this because we cannot e-file until January 24th? When I check Form availability, it also says next to the 8879  (See Below). First year with ProSeries - will this go away on the 24th, or what am I missing?

That is an issue for some folks.  The current solution is uninstall and then reinstall the program.

You dont need to uninstall and reinstall the entire program, only the 1040 Module.

Windows Add/Remove Programs    scroll down toPS 2021 and click Uninstall, it may come up with a warning about uninstalling the program, thats fine, youre not uninstalling the whole thing, it will open a window with choices like 1040, 1065, 1041  etc, choose 1040 and click Uninstall.

Now reboot the computer and when you come back, open PS and go to Updates > Select and Download New Products and check the 1040 box again, let it download.install.

Just tried Lisa's solution - experimented yesterday and got the "DO NOT FILE". Did the uninstall / reinstall as her instructions and that watermark is now gone.

 

Thanks Lisa.
