Using TurboTax Business 2017, it's February 10, 2018 according to the physical calendar, the date and time on the computer match (i.e. it's not my date and time). The New York Partnership forms were made ready February 9th (according to Intuit, and the fact that it downloaded them and let me complete the NY forms.)
When trying to efile, I get this "You cannot e-file this tax return because the Intuit Electronic Filing Center is not open for the season yet. We accept 2017 New York Partnership tax returns from the beginning of the tax season to end of tax season. We'll see you then!"
I've deleted my address and reentered/ I verified at the form level as well. I've stopped and restarted...I've checked various "links" in other questions regarding the date, and nothing is relevant.
So, when will Intuit be open?
Unfortunately, some forms are not available at this time. I have included some information that will give you details on dates when forms will be available.

I am having the same issue today trying to file 1120S - 2020, through the Turbotax Business 2020 product. The updated pages were loaded this morning, all review validations have passed, and the digital signature has been attached.
When I try to 'Transmit Returns Now', I get the pop-up... "You cannot e-file this tax return because the Intuit Electronic Filing Center is not open for the season yet. We accept 2020 Federal S-Corporation tax returns from beginning of tax season to end of tax season. We'll see you then!"
This is obviously not the correct reason for the error as we are beyond the beginning of tax season!
Please provide some accurate information for resetting my expectations - Thank You.
I'm also receiving the same error message as eas1 when I click the Transmit Returns button. I did an update today and the error that the forms aren't ready went away, but now I receive this error on Transmit. When can we transmit our 1120-S returns???
I get the same message >>>season not open yet... but I cannot efile, I try to reboot my PC window 10 but nothing work, that is with the Turbotax business, I cannot believe they did not update that common issue. I try to call at [phone number removed] get a ticket but operators are too busy to answer!!!!! Is somebody has a solution ?
@paulgilber1 My 1120-S did file on Friday, 02/12. I'm also running Turbotax Business with Windows10.
But I have not received any confirmation yet. Status is still Pending with the message... 'We are waiting for confirmation of your status from the IRS. Wait 24 to 48 hours, then check your status again.'
(Still waiting since it's a 3-day weekend.)
@weblynne , maybe you can let us know when your return shows that it has been accepted. Thanks!
I got the same message, but I was able to file the federal return only. Problem is with the State I am from New Jersey. Something wrong with the Turbotax for some State stop us to file our business form. Hope they will fix it soon. I also updated my program but that does not help. Some body from Massachusetts has same issue.
