This had me worried. Thank, so much, for the info Feb. 12 info.  Funny that they're starting on what used to be a federal holiday. Thanks, again.

I get the message on my return which I submitted end of Jan and still have the message on Feb 11. I filed two other returns and they were both accepted to day Feb 11.

@Glocoat  Those two "accepted" filings may have been part of the IRS early testing of their systems.
