four days after e-filing date to give IRS enough time to process withdrawal request. However, an increasing number of clients are calling me back to tell me that no money has been withdrawn by IRS on the agreed date. Is it a ProSeries glitch or is it another IRS problem this year 2021. Clients are hesitant to make the payment, manually, at IRS.GOV, and later IRS comes and makes a belated withdrawal. IRS will eventually refund the extra money withdrawn but *** knows when. Should I advise clients to forgo automatic withdrawal and go directly to IRS.GOV and manually do the payment online.
Its not just Intuit, but they are addressing the issue Ive seen in otehr tax pro groups that their clients are seeing it take up to 2 weeks for the money to pull.
Lucky me, they grabbed my $$ on the day it was scheduled...I wonder if it has to do with the bank?
Are you talking about balance due or estimated payments? We have several clients who have estimates efiled through proseries. Is the April 15 estimated payment going to be deducted and applied to April or are they going to have double payments deducted in June?
Update to my initial post/question: Now clients are calling me back to update me that IRS has finally withdrawn their payment from their account. Apparently, it is taking one to two weeks for IRS to do it and as Just-Lisa-Now and Bob Kamman pointed out, IRS is now catching up. Good info you guys, thank you.
