Here is the error message:
"Form 1040: Individual:
The IRS and state have temporarily stopped accepting transmission of TY17 indivdual e-file returns. The IRS and state will not accept transmission of 2017 Individual e file submissions until January or Early February of 2020. When the IRS and Sates pen for efile processing you can once again resume transmission of 2017 e file submissions.
blah blah not transmitted. Is this for real? and I am guessing this applies to 2018 as well? I don't want to file 2018 before 2017.
