The delays affect both consumer (TurboTax) and professional (Lacerte, ProSeries) submissions.

And the way I read the announcement is that the IRS is limiting how many they will accept from Intuit each day this week. I imagine that Intuit uses the same back-end e-filing system for all of their products. That means all of us - consumers and professionals - are waiting in the same queue to get returns submitted.

As for me, I've got less than a dozen returns waiting to be sent in. I flat out told a few people that there is no point in getting their returns ready before 2/15. What they don't know is that I just did them anyway (time is money this time of year, after all) and have been sitting on the returns waiting for this week. So I'll get them printed up today and tomorrow, then have the clients come in to pick up the returns and sign.

I'm doing my part to push the filing logjam off for a bit. Besides, I'm of the same opinion as someone up-thread -- let someone else be the guinea pig. I'll wait a day or two to make sure there are no problems with the system.
