CA Estimated tax payments via electronic funds withdrawal

Level 2

I am trying to schedule the estimated tax payments for the Califronia return via electronic payments. I have filled out Part VI of the General Info Worksheets on the Federal side and listed the 3 vouchers I wanted the program to pay and have checked the box for the electronic payment on the  general Info worksheet on the state side. I did not get any error but the instruction letter  still says to pay the voucher by check. The federal estimated tax payments work fine.

How could I make the state side work?

That option in the fed info sheet is new this year, Im honestly not sure how it works. I think that's for Efiling them on the fly throughout the year, not scheduling them ahead of time.

I would deselect the estimated payments there and use the 540ES worksheet in the CA return, this is how I always schedule them for auto withdrawals for the year.

I've tried everything including hours on the phone with tech support, they're totally useless.  I even sent a "sanitized" data file and the idiot told me it was because the 540-ES is not final - which is not true.  Here's the error message I get, which is totally bogus, it's not being rejected by CA, it's being rejected by Intuit.  There is no missing or incomplete information despite what the error message says.  I've tried deleting the CA return and re-entering, no help.  Now I have the same problem with another client's return

Description: /CA-Return/CA-ReturnData/CA-Payment/PaymentInformation
Error Detail:
There is missing or incomplete information in the payment record.

Review the following information on the California Information Worksheet. After making the following corrections as needed, resubmit the State return electronically:

Part I: A telephone number must be provided. Also, select the related checkbox (e.g., if a work phone number is provided, check the box labeled "Taxpayer Work")

Part VIII: If electing Direct Deposit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal, ensure all banking related information is completed and valid: Account Type (i.e., checking or savings), Routing Number, Account Number.
