I will alert the Moderator that you seem to have the same issue.

I am having the same issue. I have deleted software and installed 3 times to no avail.

Add me to the list as well. I had filed my Federal on March 5th and it was accepted the same day.  I had to wait to file my NYS return as TT was updating forms. They sent the software update to the state software last night. When I go to E-file I get the same issue as in the screenshots.

 

I called support last night and they said this was the first report they had. I spent over an hour talking to them and they worked with higher-level IT, took screenshots of my issue. Said they would call me back today or email me back. All I have heard back so far are crickets. I see a lot of people posting in other support places.

I saw in another forum, someone posted this link to add your name to this issue for TT.
