You need to refile ASAP;it is your as TP, responsibility to check and confirm Acknowledgments , electronic confirmations, that are issued online by the IRS / state via TB when the returns are received and approved. If the IRS detects an error, an error message is sent back to you or your preparer for corrections to be made. So, once the corrections are made, the returns are re-transmitted to the IRS.
