So I got a rejection of state. TT was supposed to "walk me through" fixing, and I do not have any warm fuzzy it was fixed. I clicked the "help me fix it" and it just told me schedule C this or that but took me no where. I am hoping it just fixed it but I am doubtful.
So I thought I would just efile again and see if it circles back around because I can't get TT to tell me about the rejection issue and it still "analyzes" as all fine. However, when I do the recommended and efile, it complains that i have to have a federal return. Well, federal was accepted already as I efiled it with state yesterday and only state was rejected. It even says it just below in the efile page. How does it not know they arlready did that? I have not been impressed with this years TT.
I too am in an endless loop. I clicked "E-file Federal" and "Do not e-file state, I'll do it later". Have rec'd email saying Federal was accepted. A day later, when I try to e-file State, I click "E-file my state now". The bottom of the screen says "The following return has been transmitted - Federal Return". I click "Continue". The next screen says "E-file requires federal return. To e-file, you must also select the federal return. Click Back to select federal and any other returns you'd like to file". I click "Back" and repeat the process. Round and round we go. I have not only closed and reopened TurboTax, I have rebooted the computer. It appears I will have to print and mail my state return. I am very unhappy.
