Below is a list of e-filing deadlines for returns, extensions, and estimated tax payments throughout the calendar year.

We will begin holding business returns on December 23rd, 2021, 2pm PST. This is in advance of the IRS shutdown. You will be able to continue e-filing business returns and we will hold any TY19 or TY20 returns submitted after 2 PM PST in a 'Received by Intuit' status until the IRS re-opens business filing in January.

Important: We will permanently shut down TY18 filing on December 18th, 2021 at 10am PST. This allows enough time to submit and acknowledge returns.

Before the scheduled shutdown, try to retrieve all submissions and submit the acknowledgements. If for some reason users are not able to retrieve the submissions or submit the acknowledgements they can do so after the IRS shutdown.

Additional e-file and perfection period information

  • When an e-filed return or extension is rejected, the IRS provides a Transmission Perfection Period, or look-back period, to correct the filing and retransmit it. If the previously rejected filing is accepted by the IRS within the perfection period, it will be considered to have been received on the date of the first rejection that occurred within the period. Extensions for individuals are typically granted 5 calendar days. For more details on the perfection period, see IRS Pub. 4164. Check your state’s website to verify whether they allow the same perfection period as the IRS.
  • Returns DO NOT have to be Accepted by the IRS and/or states by the due date to be considered timely filed. An electronic postmark is assigned to a return when it is received by the Intuit Electronic Filing Center. This electronic postmark is the date the return or extension is considered filed. This electronic postmark is reported as the Return Submitted date and time displayed in the E-file Postmark.
    • The ERO is allowed until April 20, 2021 to correct and retransmit a rejected return. If the return is still rejected, the ERO is allowed an additional 5 calendar days to paper file the return.
  • Returns DO NOT have to be Accepted by the IRS and/or states on October 15, 2021 to be considered timely filed. An electronic postmark is assigned to a return when it is received by the Intuit Electronic Filing Center. This electronic postmark is the date the return or extension is considered filed. This electronic postmark is reported as the Return Submitted date and time displayed in the E-file Postmark.
    • The ERO is allowed until October 20, 2021 to correct and retransmit a rejected return. If the return is still rejected, the ERO is allowed an additional 5 calendar days to paper file the return.
  • The ERO should print the reject notice and Intuit Electronic Postmark Report and submit these documents with the paper return or extension. If paper filing and you are mandated as a preparer to electronically file the Federal 1040 returns, you should also complete and print Form 8948 to be mailed with the return.
