Thank you for a reply.  ProSeries does support Texas franchise tax e-filing.  I tried to e-file a 2021 return from the 2020 software today and received  the message "Electronic Filing for 2020 Texas Corporation is not yet available".  I thought I saw somewhere it would be available 2/22/21.  Through research, I am not able to find any dates or assistance.

Why?  Louisiana also cannot be filed.  This is not at the state level its at the Intuit level and I would like to know why these are so behind?  We cannot even file extensions in these states which is crazy when it is 2.24.21!!

At first the Efile release date was 2/19, then it got moved to 2/26 and now it is saying 3/11. It's bad every year but this is just ridiculous. Is this a State issue or a ProSeries issue? I need to know who to complain to. Because the State Webfile system is up and running no problem, but we pay a lot of money every year to use ProSeries and keep the information in one place.

I am also waiting on the filing of the Texas Franchise Return. But I have a bigger issue now.  I filed an Ohio State return with a School District Return with a refund of $844.00. There was no mention of it on the e-file screen.  I called Lacerte and the expert told me to go ahead and file, it might not show up on the e-file screen.  This made me nervous because Ohio is a piggyback state. The filing instructions said it was a direct deposit and it would go into their back account. (One of my checks for accuracy.) The preparers e-file directions echoed the same.  However, when I printed out the confirmation letter there was no mention (again) of the school district being filed.  I called Lacerte again, and spoke to another expert, that told me she didn't know why it didn't e-file, but it didn't. I am contacting our rep at Lacerte to see if I can have a solution.  We also pay GREAT money to have superior service and I believe Lacerte should fix the issue and file the School District Return.

I really appreciate the link you provided, however, it doesn't include TX.  I appreciate the date you provided as well, I was not getting a date, but a link to nowhere.

thanks

No texas on this list.

I got TX from that link. Did you read at the top how to navigate it? You don't have "Individual TX" so, for instance, you might be investigating:

1120 & States

And then:

TX

And then:

Forms Info tab

And then:

Thanks for your reply, BTW we do have individual tx franchise. We have been filing them for years. Some things you learn in life.

@davidsteve ;  You are quick!  beat me to it

"we do have individual tx franchise"

Not for purposes of that Lookup function for this program. Go ahead and try:

1040 & States
