I e-filed 2 rather large tax returns on 10/15. Lacerte confirms accepted by the IRS 10/15. IRS notices state the returns were received 11/9. I realize I can call the IRS Practitioners Gate but how many of these I am going to get? Is this an IRS error or Lacerte. The first one the penalty is in excess of $15k for late filing!!
Check the Accepted date on the acknowledgement. That is the official electronic timestamp the IRS will accept (equivalent to the good ol' stamp from USPS) and you can use that to respond to the IRS notice.
Still an AllStar
