Tax Prep Software with Bank Products Ultimate Tax blog post header 9

We are informing you that the IRS intends to shut e-filing on November 21st. We will stop accepting returns on November 18th. This includes individual returns for all years.

No returns will be accepted until the IRS turns e-file back on in early January 2021.

This is normal each season so that the IRS can get ready for the next filing season. 2017 will no longer be able to be e-filed after November 18th. In January the IRS will allow 2018, 2019, & 2020 returns to be electronically filed. Dates are not established for start of e-file yet.

This is for individual returns only. Business returns will also follow a similar shutdown.

Thank you!
