Happy End of the Tax Season!
Happy 4/15! Today is April 15th, and the last day to timely file tax returns for your clients. There are a few things to keep in mind as we pass the filing deadline.
- Rejected returns have until 4/20/2013 to be fixed and get accepted, and will still be considered “Timely Filed”.
- The IRS and state departments of revenue will continue to accept electronically filed tax returns past 4/15/2013, so don’t think that if someone is late that you have to paper file their returns.
- Back Years returns for 2010 and 2011 can be e-filed!
Federal Direct will be submitting returns all day and throughout the evening up until 12 midnight Eastern Time, but to ensure timely processing we suggest having returns submitted before 10pm Eastern.
Federal Direct will return to normal non-tax season office hours of Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm Eastern starting tomorrow, Tuesday April 16th.
Federal Direct is open year round for office support, so if you have client’s with problematic returns, questions on filings, or if you have clients that need representation needs do not hesitate to give us a call.
Federal Direct will be closed Monday, April 22nd to give our staff a well deserved long weekend to recoup from the tax season.
