I have a couple of clients that didn't get their 8879 to me before the first of this year, thus missing the 12-31 deadline to use my 2019 Fast Path (basic).
I got a new Fast Path (pro) and have been unable to e-file.
When I go to tools/license it shows both Fast Paths.
I was told earlier this week that I needed to wait for the open filing (today). Still getting the same error:
Fast Path Required
You must have an active ProSeries Fast Path license for tax year 2020 in order to access this feature in 2021.
Please visit My Account to renew or verify your ProSeries software renewal status for tax year 2021
Please help. If I go into 2019 Pro (versus basic, where the 1040 is), it is trying to charge me PPR. I have literally spent thousands for tax software and REALLY do not want to pay more for something I already have.
I dont know what the fix is, except maybe to download 2019 Professional then it will pick up the 2020 Pro Fast Path license....but Im just guessing here, Im honestly not sure that would solve it or not.
I literally was switched around a bit on the telephone (person to person to person), but I eventually got a hold of someone that was able to do this for me. They needed to make my 2019 account 'Pro' (versus the Basic + 15 Business that I had), thus giving me the ability to e-file.
