EFILE ACCEPTED ACKNOWLEGEMENTS FOR NY IT203 and IT203-X or IT201 and IT201-X cannot co-exist in the efile center.
EFILE CENTER DOES NOT PERMIT EFILE OF A RETURN WHEN ANOTHER RETURN W/SAME SSN EXISTS IN EFILE CENTER .
NY DOR requires tax preparers to efile all income tax returns and to efile amendments.
The intuit instructions for filing a NY amended return are essentially a confusing and painful workaround because the efile center does not permit a return to be efiled when there exists another return with the same SSN within the efile center.
This was discussed last season with Moderator Neal who agreed that “a checkbox of some sort would be easy as would a query rule of some sort for the Homebase that ignores the duplicate when it's marked as amended.”
This year moderators have advised that this is classified a product defect. Hopefully we’ll have a resolution soon.
