The Internal Revenue Service announced today that it is providing taxpayers an additional day to file and pay their federal taxes following system issues that surfaced early on the April 17 tax deadline. Tax preparers will now have until midnight on Wednesday, April 18 to file their clients’ taxes. Taxpayers do not need to do anything to receive this extra time.
Intuit ProConnect’s suite of products will be available and accepting e-files in line with the extended deadline on April 18. Tax preparers should continue to file their taxes like they normally do this Tuesday evening. For those who prepared and filed taxes with Intuit ProConnect earlier today during the IRS system issues, we are now submitting those returns to the IRS, and the IRS is processing newly filed returns as normal.
