It's affecting a lot of people in a lot of different states.  The FAQ where one can sign up for notifications has had almost 3,000 views in 3 days.  There is no new info in the FAQ, but, hopefully, there will be more info about a possible "cure" soon.   TurboTax updates typically occur on Thursdays.  Whether that's the case for this issue, I don't know.  Hopefully, the FAQ will say at some point when to expect it.

Same problem with my California Return, I'm stuck not being able to e-file because there is no option to when I go back to select the Federal Return.

Hello USA!

I just got an email from TT.  They said it would be fixed by 3/19 which means if you use a desktop version, you'll probably see it in an update on the next day.  

Good luck to all.

Opened TT today (Deluxe version for Windows).

It auto-updated with the fix.  🙂

I was then able to e-file my NYS returns without incident.

Just waiting to for NYS to formally accept the return.

Good luck to all who had this issue.
