The state of Georgia is not accepting returns until 2/01/20, according to the State's website https://dor.georgia.gov/individual-electronic-filing-faq. If you are receiving a message stating efile not available until February 3rd, please log back into your TurboTax Online account or TurboTax Desktop program on February 3rd. Click "Take Me To Return" and follow the steps provided so that you can complete your State return and efile it.

You can e-file federal and state at the same time.  The state e-file will just be Pending until the state starts receiving tax returns.

Just like "Britt90" stated about the federal, is there a way to tell the system to not file both at once? because it seems like as it stands the system will keep trying to e-file both federal and state at the same time on its own and thus causes for the file not to be sent because of this. I, myself, only need the federal sent and I can't do that when every time I press "transit my returns now" it always say "You cannot e-file this tax return because the Intuit Electronic Filing Center is not open for the season yet. We accept 2019 Georgia Personal tax returns starting 02-03-2020 06:00 AM. We'll see you then!" as if I want them to file at the same time...

No ones question has been answered. We all in GA and experience the same issue. Is the federal portion filed or not? The way I read it nothing will be filed until 2/3. This has never been an issue before. Normally federal files immediately and then state a few weeks later. It looks like we are stuck for a week. Unless someone can actually answer the question. Is our federal filed or not?

So on 2/3 will turbo automatically resubmit or would we have to go back into the portal and submit the return?

I found a work around. When it asks to file return at end choose to mail instead. Then you will have a option to efile federal without the state and either mail the state return or complete it later to efile on 2/3 or whenever the state of GA is ready. I hope this helps and I explained it to the best of my ability.

Nope I just filed my federal without my state with option to do it later.
