Proseries software says that I can't print an Ohio individual tax return until Feb.12, 2021. I've called support three times about this issue. They say the form isn't final until 2/12/21. Has anyone been able to print the Ohio tax return as of today (2/8/21)? I've talked to other CPA's who use Lacerte and they are all able to print the State of Ohio tax return. In prior years, I was able to print the Ohio tax return with a watermark that said "do not file - form not approved". That is fine with me. I would be happy to print it that way, so I have something to give to clients.
I can't imagine what their motivation for lying would be. I would think they have different programmers for Lacerte and ProSeries. I think that ProSeries got the forms to Ohio late for approval and they are still waiting on the approval from the state.
