I've e-filed numerous federal 1040s with balances due which have been accepted by the IRS. All were sent in marked to may the tax via bank draft. Some were accepted over a week ago, but the tax payments have not left the client's bank accounts yet. I'd say I have about 10-15 clients with this issue.
I know lots of refunds are being delayed, but are others seeing actual tax payments being delayed also?
I understand that there are processing delays for tax refunds, but I still have numerous clients that owed tax and the accepted e-filed tax returns were marked to pay the tax via bank draft. Its been over 3 weeks and those payments have not processed yet. Before I waste my time calling the IRS, is this an actual system wide problem with the IRS not pulling out tax payments on e-filed tax returns?
