Have you ever submitted your EFIN application summary to Intuit? I think you can do it from your online Intuit account https://www.intuit.com/sign-in/
From the Dashboard choose Account > Account Details and in your Tax Prep credentials does it show an Approved EFIN?
I have been using proseries since 2013 and the EFIN status shows as verified. I did exactly what you said. I have never encountered so many issues with proseries as I am dealing with this year.
I thank you anyway for your input.
