Just curious, I set up the withdrawal date for tax payment on June 23 for the tax return in pending for e-file due to this error. Will the funds be automatically withdrawn even if the return was accepted by IRS after June 23 once they fix the problem.
I "think" once they fix the issue those that are being held will get officially rejected (this is what has happened in the past when something like this happens and they hold the returns like this), you can then update the withdrawal date and re-Efile it.
Part IV - 2018 Estimated Tax payments ..... error in EFTPS Confirmation Number (odd but this is a 2019 Form 1120, and they are 2019, not 2018 Estimated Taxes in the Worksheet) .... and I have no estimated tax payments ... this is a C-Corp with NOL c/f
Officer Firm name must be 20 characters or less (name in Worksheet is John) ...
When taxable income is zero, or less than zero, Line 35, Amount owed should be left blank .... (this is the most plausible, but line 35 on page one of return is a calculated figure and is blank in my form)
So, none of the articulated speculative reasons for this error make sense
Intuit is taking questions/problems until 9pm Pacific, maybe someone has some suggestions (I dont prepare corp returns, so Im really not much help, sorry.)
