Why when I try to transmit return do I have a box coming up telling me to enter Electronic Filling Password.

Same thing here, I don't have the word "password" on my options.  I have been in the phone for more than one hour waiting to someone to answer my call, Very disappointed!

You need to have disable Access Rights feature. Once is disable the passwords will show in options.

I have the exact same problem. Why is that all of a sudden?

Every year, we always have to deal with some new and unexpected findings. Someone must have known that. It is very frustrating.

My first year with ProSeries, I had the same issue. I did not set up any passwords and eventually I reached technical support and after many attempts, including directly accessing my computer remotely, the problem was fixed. Since you are both new, it could be part the initial set-up of your software. They had to use a master password from Intuit and some routine involving ALT, F12,C. This was 6 years ago so don't try this yourself, get on the hold list for technical support and keep at it till you get results.

It took me hours, so don't get too discouraged on the first day.

If you go to Tools/Options/passwords....at bottom there is a checkbox "proseries should always prompt.....". Is that box checked by chance?

Same here. I have been on hold for an hour. No password options under the tools tab. Any updates?

There is a workaround for this.  You need to Disable User Rights   Tools > Users & Access  Rights >Disable   

Its not a fix, its just a workaround util they fix it.
