Direct debit not available if not e-filing return?

Thought the purpose of using TurboTax is to e-file. If I want to mail my return I would not require TurboTax service.

I think I figured out why the option is not available. It says some forms are not yet ready. I am hoping once the form is ready it will give me the option to e-file.

@roll4real2reel Yes, you are correct. If there are any forms that aren't available yet, the program will not let you e-file. You can check the status of form availability in the below TurboTax FAQs:
