Stockpiled Delayed Returns to Be Accepted on Sunday, Online Filing to Start Next Week


Late Wednesday, the IRS announced that it will begin accepting from e-file transmitters stockpiled returns containing the 29 forms for which acceptance was delayed beginning on Sunday, March 3, at 7 a.m. ET (Quick Alerts for Tax Professionals (2/27/13)).

E-file transmitters have been holding returns submitted with the delayed forms and not transmitting them to the IRS, which has not been prepared to accept them. The IRS says transmitters should send only their stockpiled inventory on Sunday, evenly spread out throughout the day; the Modernized e-File team will review reject trends to ensure everything is working properly. The transmitters should not yet enable online filing of forms.

Assuming there are no problems, the IRS says it will issue a Quick Alert early next week announcing the official opening of e-filing for all returns and forms. At that time, the 29 forms that have been delayed will be accepted for online filing.
