End of Tax Filing Season in 2018

E-filing for taxes in 2018 will be shut down on November 17th at 10 pm filing center time. The shut down marks the beginning of preparation for the upcoming tax filing season which is slated to begin in mid to late January 2019.  Once e-filing is turned back on, tax returns for 2016, 2017 and 2018 will all be e-filable.

States that are sent as “linked” will be impacted, so be sure to send any last minute state returns as “un-linked.”

If you have not yet renewed, support will be limited.  To ensure continued full-office support, contact John Rogers or Adam Wade at 866-357-2052.
