IRS e-File Shutdown for Individual Returns - November 21

Recommended Posts

The 1040 e-file system will be taken off-line to perform annual system maintenance in preparation for the upcoming filing season. The last day in 2020 to e-file 2019 Federal and State Individual tax returns is Saturday, November 21, 2020. If planning to transmit on this last day, please check with your software vendor for the cutoff time for transmitting and processing returns for e-filing.

Note: e-Filing for tax year 2017 individual returns ends for good on November 21, 2020. When e-filing resumes, returns will only be accepted for tax years 2018, 2019, and 2020.  

Taxpayers required to file during this shutdown period will have to file paper returns. 

The IRS has not yet released the shutdown schedule for business returns; however, an announcement with the dates and times is expected in early December.

Crap,  I didn't see ATX deadline for e-filing.  I have 2 picking up today.  Guess only option is to paper and stay in the pile of unprocessed returns.  Both are refunds.

It actually might be faster to wait until efiling reopens in 8 or 9 weeks🤔
