Re: If Pro Series automatically extended tax returns when issued due to COVID-19, why is client getting a later filing letter?
ProSeries didnt do anything automatically.
What type of return are you referring to?
IRS extended the due dates for returns that were originally due 4/1 and after to 7/15.
IRS also announced that recently many bills went out (that shouldnt have) that are dated back in April, the computers did their thing automatically.
Returns were not extended; the filing date was changed to July 15. That's not the same thing.
Returns are now due 7/15/2020. If you cannot get them done by 7/15, you need an extension to October 15, 2020.
