For 2019?  You cannot e-file a 2019 state return until your federal return has been filed and accepted by the IRS.  The IRS will not even begin to accept returns until January 27, so if you already e-filed your federal return it is just sitting on a server, waiting.  You cannot file state yet.

Wait....what do you mean it allowed you to file 2018 that you forgot to file last year....did you enter 2018 state data in to the 2019 online software and file it just now?  And then go back in to the program and try to put in 2019?  Please explain in more detail what you did.
