I accidentally hit "file my return"... I need to remove the W-2 and file (not amend) electronically as per New York State law.

So, here is the story... I have been trying to file for months now... I accidentally went all the way, and TurboTax won't allow me to file electronically with a W-2 that lacks a value in Box 1... I contacted the IRS, and they stated that I don't need to record the extra W-2, but unfortunately, I seem to have locked myself out of filing completely, as NYS law requires that all software based tax prepared tax forms be sent electronically... Thus, I need to simply go into TurboTax, remove the W-2, and file the first time electronically before Tax Day...

Did you actually e-file your federal?

And by the way, I have not yet printed my original returns and sent them, as NYS will not accept a paper return... It is only my third time filing taxes, and I really just want to fix it and send it immediately...

I am going to give you instructions on how to amend so you can 'unlock' your return.

In past years, yes... This year, I got stuck with a W-2 that I thought had to be reported... As I stated, I contacted the IRS about it, and it turns out to be a valid, but unnecessary W-2... I have not printed my returns, nor sent them in any form for this year...

TurboTax insists I must file on paper, but I know after contacting the IRS that this is not the case, and my only option (according to TurboTax) is to file a 1040X...

If you hit File my Return then it probably got sent by efile.  You better double check if it went though,

Would it allow me to efile normally (i.e. standard 1040)?

And, to answer VolvoGirl's question, uh... No, the IRS hasn't received anything either...
