"Return Sent to State" still showing in EF Center under EF Status

Level 2

I am still showing "Return Sent to State" in the EF Center in the EF Status column for several returns that were filed on the 15th of Feb. 2020.  Does this mean it has been accepted?  How long does it take for the State to accept it?  It did not take this long last year for the State to accept the return.

Some states take longer than other states to accept the returns. The acknowledgement will say that the return was accepted.

I went into the e-file center, highlighted the returns that I did not get confirmation for, then selected at the top E-File, Electronic filing, Update acknowledgement status of select returns.  This fixed the efile listing for me.

I have done that a number of times and still says the same thing.  There is a good possibility the NM is behind but was curious if it might have had something to do with the program and wanted to see if any others out there were encountering the same issue.

I am also from New Mexico, returns status not changed from Sent to state.  Another CPA firm also has issues with a different software.  I cant find anything on the state website

Thank you! I have not been able to find anything either...definitely frustrated as I always like to get the returns completed in a timely fashion and can't seem to get any answers.  If I do get some answers, I will be sure to post what info I obtain here.
