Federal amended returns cannot be e-filed. Be sure to file the federal amended return on paper.
Ignore option not available: This is a required, critical diagnostic. US - Ref #13868.
I understand that you cannnot efile 2018 federal amended return.
You cannot e-file a Federal amended return. The e-file box for Federal under Profile should be unchecked. CA is a standalone state and you should be e-file that, independent of federal.
Still an AllStar
@itonewbie Thanks a lot.
You are right I should unchecked federal e-file box. But would PTO attach f1040X and the amended f1040 to the amended 2018 CA540 (including f X) by unchecking federal e-file box at Profile?
I also have other 2 attachments only to be attached to the amended CA540. It seems that by having these attachments PTO does not allow e-file by issuing these diagnostics: PDF Attachment #1: The pdf attachment is marked to be sent with the federal return, but the federal return is not selected for e-file in screen 1. CA - Ref #35156.
Please let me know how to solve the only 2 attachments to the amended 2018 CA540. Thanks.
