Delays in obtaining Federal acceptance response

Highlighted
Level 1

I usually get my federal acceptance response within an hour of E-filing.  I have received no acceptance on multiple federal returns filed over the last 24 hours.  I have received state acceptance though.  Anyone else seeing the same problem?  Wish they would put up an alert if it is a problem like it was back in June.    Thanks

Remember the "old" forum, where we could see if, and who, was drafting a response?

Yes, "they" did this. It would come to your email inbox if you sign up for the e-newsletters, here:
