I got an email for QBs which states as below. Does this mean QBs will provide the update on time for sure? 


Update: 2020 NJ W2 and NJ W3 E-file Capability

We are currently working on adding the ability to electronically file your 2020 NJ-W2 and NJ-W3 tax filings via your QuickBooks Desktop Payroll account. We understand that with the agency e-file mandate, this issue has been a cause of concern for our New Jersey customers. Prior to the February 15, 2021 due date, we will provide an email update when the ability to electronically file these returns has been enabled.

We apologize for the delay in adding this feature for your business.

I received the email stating that the NJ w2 and W3 efile is now available.  I updated my Quickbooks and the e-file button is disabled.  How do I enable the button and or set it up for efile?  The "help" for "how can I e-file this form" window get an error message.  Please help at time is running out.
