Trying to efile a 2019 amended 1040X. Followed the steps outlined on the community site to prepare and file the return. Everytime I attempt to efile I get a message the original return has to be file first. The return was filed, there is a completed form 9325 in the data file but I can't seem to figure out how to reset the file to accept the original return was filed.
Well, I'm getting close. No longer getting the "no efiled return" message. Now I'm getting a message about the signature date. "Year of PrimarySignatureDT" in the return header must be equal to the processing year. I've searched high and lo for the date that might be impacting the filing. I have in my preparer info. for the program not to include dates in the signature fields because I have the client date the signature pages when they sign. The only place I found a 2020 signature date was in the field for the client or preparer to enter a PIN. Since that is the only message I'm receiving on the reject notice I'm at a loss as to what I need to correct.
In regards to the confirmation Submission ID that appears after you e-file, the correct Submission ID for the Amended appears on Form 9325, but the date of filing appears to be that from the original filing. Do you know if this is just another quirk in the system? There does not seem to be a separate line dedicated for just the Amended returns.
