Efiling a client but am getting efile status messages from other clients who I have already efiled

Level 1

I am trying to efile one client like I have always done from their individual tax return file. When I select the efile electronically and check both state and Federal to be efile, it seems to be working correctly but the process when receiving the acknowledgements is taking a super long time. When the acknowledgements is completed, my client's name is not listed but a lot of other clients are listed. One even indicated that a client had an error but that client's efile was accepted back in February. HOW can I efile a client's 2019 tax return????

Maybe you should wait until efiling reopens later this month.

Do you know when it will open?

You can check the latest MeF status update here: https://www.marketingexpress.irs.gov/systems-status/system-status-mef/modernized-efile-mef-operation...

But you should really sign up for the IRS' e-News update for tax professionals: https://service.govdelivery.com/accounts/USIRS/subscriber/new

Nope.  Only the IRS knows for sure and I don't know if they even know at this point in time.
