2021 can not be efiled.  Since this thread does not contain what issues you encountered could you post an explanation and error messages if any?

Foreign tax credit issues

I had issues with last year 2020 turbo tax return ( foreign tax credit , schedule 116)

ended up with a workaround which allowed me to Efiled and received  my refund back and also a pdf for my record .


however when I go back to turbo tax 2020, it said that my return has not been filed . 

i am in the process of buying the 2021 tt deluxe version .

I would like to get the tax file 2020 imported to 2021 but as I said it said I have no efile. Will my import be successful . I know I can use the pdf file but I understand it is limited import . Is there a way turbo tax can be updated to state I have Efiled and give me a correct tax file that I can import to 2021
