    Ass-u-me....

    Nope, no one knows.  Not even the IRS (or if they do, they haven't disclosed it).  More likely later than the 15th.

    You should sign up at irs.gov for Quick Alerts so you just as soon as anyone does.

    Even if Lacerte "accepts" it, I would wait until the IRS re-opens MeF.  It's too easy for things to get lost.
