Was my State Tax return rejected because the federal was not accepted because the first day we can file is the 30th of January?

I got a notice today from Turbo Tax that my state return was not accepted.  The reason was that the Federal return was rejected.  Can I assume that the Federal return was not accepted because the IRS isn't accepting returns until the 30th of January?


Just got this email:
Dear TurboTax Customer:

You recently received this rejection message from us: "This state return was rejected because the federal taxing authority rejected the federal return."  This was a processing error on our part - no change to your state return is needed.  Please resubmit your state return for processing, if you have not done so already.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you,

The TurboTax Electronic Filing Center

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
