E-Filing and Acknowledgement Reminders Around Deadlines
    • E-filing and Acknowledgement Reminders
    • Posted Date: 03/13/2022
    • E-File acknowledgement delays can occur on or around deadlines. The stated turnaround time for many taxing jurisdictions is 24-48 hours. While they are capable of processing returns and extensions at a faster rate than that, the volume of E-Files sent during deadlines may cause acknowledgements to be delayed up to 48 hours and in some cases more.
    • Please keep in mind that sometimes state acknowledgements can take longer to receive an acknowledgement. Please be patient and we will post an acknowledgement as soon as the taxing agency issues it.
    • Electronically filed returns that are due are considered timely filed if submitted by 11:59pm local time on the day of the deadline. Thomson Reuters recommends that electronic files are transmitted at least one hour prior to the filing deadline.
