3rd party designee

Deluxe desktop with all updates won't let me e-file after I overrode the "no" answer to add a 3rd party designee; cycles back to review and tells me to undo the override. Adding this information to the personal ws doesn't add it to the 1040 so that's useless.  How to designate a third party rep on 1040 and still e-file?

I had the same problem last night. 2 hours almost on the phone with a TurboTax support person, and all he could do is advise us to print the returns out and mail them.  Tonight, different returns, now we can't print them out.

I'm somewhat surprised a TurboTax employee did not know what I know, and I'm "just another user" like you. Whenever you do an override, two things happen.
 - You can not e-file. You have to print, sign and mail the tax return.
 - You completely invalidate the TurboTax 100% Accuracy Guarantee.
