E-filing

Highlighted
Level 4

Did I miss the boat?  My Proseries gave me an alert a few days ago that E-Filing was down with the IRS temporarily.  According to my friends that use Ultra Tax, this isn't true, they continue to E-File without a problem. 

Did it go down and then back up and Proseries forgot to tell us?  Is Proseries not filing electronically for some reason.

What's the deal?  I've been holding my 8879 forms waiting for them to tell me the IRS opened again only to find out it never closed?

The boat left the harbor.  It was pretty much a one day glitch.

So they announce that the IRS is closed until further notice, then don't announce that it's reopened?  Another poor quality job done.  So very disappointed in this software.

I never saw any announcement that the IRS was closed until further notice. I saw this alert in the program and it shows as resolved.

The alert did say you could submit returns but there would be a delay in transmission to IRS.  The opening of EIP portal crashed IRS for a short time.

Intuit never said you couldnt Efile returns, they just said IRS processing was temporarily down...it was back up within 8 or 10 hours.

Here's a little tip: Never hold your breath waiting for Intuit to tell you something is fixed.

I could have sworn I saw somewhere when they were back up and running...maybe it was an IRS email and not Intuit.
