New Estate EIN, Extension rejected


Recommended Posts

I got an EIN last Friday for an estate.  I've been trying to efile a 1041 extension.  I keep getting a rejection notice that it doesn't match the IRS data base.  Does anyone know how long it takes IRS to update their data base for new EINs?  At first I thought it would have been overnight.

You may have to just snail mail the extensions for these.

I agree with Lynn, sometimes it's just way easier and faster to stick a stamp on an envelope and shove the 7004 in.  Mail and it's done.  If you want fancy, you could include the EIN letter and the e-file rejection.  But why bother?  By the time they open the envelope it will be in the IRS database.

I'll keep trying until the 14th, then mail.
