    E-Filing Starting Today -- What's Happening Out There?

    I electronically filed about a dozen TY 2020 returns ready to go starting at 5:30 AM this morning.  So far, they all just have the "Received by Intuit" status update.  In the past, I know the federal returns would be accepted as quickly as within an hour, so I suspect the returns are still being held by Intuit and not yet submitted via the MeF to the IRS.

    I also tried filing a TY 2019 return -- the process started and ended without any error messages, but there has been no change to the status -- it still shows only "Marked for EF".  I thought we were able to start e-filing 2018 and 2019 returns today too?

    Sounds like Intuit is still holding them, IRS isnt ready for full on accepting yet. 

    They were doing hub testing early this week, maybe things didnt go as smooth as theyd hoped.

    I’m just going to go out and run - run away.  Every year ——- every single year, we go through this - unbelievable.

    How does this happen when the IRS explicitly stated the e-filing season only opened today?  You are not the only one -- a poster on another forum said the same thing happened for him earlier this week.

    The IRS lets some returns in to test the system prior to opening up the floodgates.

    UPDATE:  My federal returns were all processed and accepted overnight.  My state returns now show "Sent to State".

    So we are making progress here.
