Does turbotax know that a 457 Catch-up contribution increases the maximum to $37,000?

I am 64 years old and entitled to contribute accrued vacation leave to my 457 plan under its catch-up provision. This means I can contribute $37,000, as reflected on my W-2. But turbotax won't let me efile because it says the $37,000 amount listed on my W-2 exceeds the $24,500 maximum. This is error. How can I get turbotax to recognize its error so I can efile?

Since the error is just saying the W-2 information is wrong and doesn't affect anything in the return, will TurboTax go ahead let me file?

TurboTax can now post an answer to how to get my money back.  I paid to e-file my taxes, and this is unacceptable.

The link that sweetie jean posted in every question regarding this issue does not work.  So, I still need to know if Turbo tax bothered to fix this issue!!!
