Just to add, the whole time I've been working on this, I have gotten this message:
Fairly certain that message is a mistake ... efiling of new returns has always stopped 10/15 not 10/31. Paper filing is the only option now ... in the FILE tab choose to mail in the return and then the proper forms and instructions will be populated.
We have been told by the forum moderators that if you started your tax return in TurboTax Online before October 15, you will be able to e-file it until October 31. There might be a temporary problem. You have to be e-filing from the same account where you started the tax return before October 15.
@alisontaub Are you still receiving this message? If Yes, are you willing to post a screenshot so I can alert the product team? Please remove all personal information from the screenshot if you post here.
