Can late payment of estimated tax cause e-file rejection?

TurboTax Business has boxes for the actual payment date of estimated taxes, which we filled with the dates actually paid. E-filing was stopped dead by those dates, stating that the date had to be on or before the due dates. Why does accurate late payment information defeat e-filing?

Can late payment of estimated tax cause e-file rejection?

The estimated period you put a payment in determines where that payment flows to calculate whether or not an underpayment exists.  If you pay it after the due date, and the program allowed it, the payment would flow to the wrong place and the calculations wouldn't be correct.  If you made a second quarter estimated tax payment after the due date, it wasn't really a second quarter estimated payment - it was a third quarter payment.  Just  adjust your estimated payments so that the dates match the payment period.
