Error Message for state

Does Federal go through if state isn't accepted e-file returns yet.

My error message

You cannot e-file this tax return because the Intuit Electronic Filing Center is not open for the season yet. We accept 2019 Georgia Personal tax returns starting 02-03-2020 06:00 AM. We'll see you then!

 

Did my federal go through?

You can file your federal return separately since GA isn't yet ready to accept e-filed returns.  But you will need to return to your state return later, after your federal return has been accepted by the IRS, to complete your state filing.

 

To find out if your federal return was successfully e-filed, you can check the status of that return using the instructions linked below.

 

How do I check my e-file status? 

 

You may find that your return is still "Pending" since the IRS doesn't officially open tax season until January 27.  

Once your federal return has been accepted, use the instructions below to complete your state e-filing.

 

How do I e-file my state after I already filed my federal?

It says I have the same $ value on two W 2 s, but I don't.  What is wrong?

It sounds like you may have accidentally duplicated your W-2 entries. To check on this, please click Wages & Income in TurboTax Online, and click Job (W-2).

Thanks I have double checked all entries.  There 4 w 2s, and each one is very different.  Not even close.  But it says I have a same $ amount in two or more places, and can not e file in Indiana.  I have tried temporarily putting in a few different numbers but no help.   Is it worth trying to delete each one and re-enter?

Oh, I may have mis-stated.  I am not "on line" I got a CD.  Does that make a difference what I do?

Using the Desktop version as opposed to the Online version shouldn't make any difference.  As you mentioned, I recommend deleting your W-2s and re-entering them.  If you imported them, I would manually enter them.
