    California is standalone/direct for e-filing and California does not have a shutdown for e-filing like the iRS.  This means you should be able to e-file CA-540.  See these articles below for more info:

    My recall is you need uncheck the fed e-file box in screen 1. Try without doing this and let us know.

    Here's wishing you many Happy Returns
