How do I electronically file my T2 Business Incorporated TurboTax Return when I constantly get "Webservice Unavailable" after pressing the File Now button?


I am using TurboTax Business Incorporated 2013 and trying to file my return using internet filing.  My year end is June 30, 2014 which falls between the dates on the CD Box I purchased.  Here is the error message I get when I attempt to file online:

Webservice Unavailable

TurboTax Business Incorporated was unable to connect to the transmission service.

This may be because:
The host server is down or offline.
The host server may be experiencing a high volume of traffic at the moment and is not responding.
TurboTax Business Incorporated is able to connect to the Internet but the requested service is down or not responding at this time. Please try again later.

I have version 2013.5.5 Build 0.

Could someone please help me out with this issue?  I have tried adding TurboTax to my firewall and anti-virus exception list and I still get the same errors.  I also called CRA and they confirmed that their server is not down.  Is there any other solution that will work?  Is there a way I can manually send the .cor file without using the TurboTax filing method?

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.
