1065 and 1120-S Filing Deadline – Run These Reports to Ensure Your Returns and Extensions Have Been Accepted

Today, 3/15/18 is the filing deadline for 1065 and 1120-S returns and extensions. TaxSlayer Pro highly recommends running the following reports to ensure that all of your business returns and extensions have been submitted and accepted:

  • Business Returns Not Accepted Report
  • Business State Returns Not Accepted Report
  • Business Electronic Extensions Not Accepted Report

To run and print these reports, from the Main Menu of TaxSlayer Pro select:

4 – Business
9 – Electronic Filing Menu
3 – Print Reports
5 – Returns Not Accepted
1 – Returns Not Accepted Report
3 – State Returns Not Accepted Report
5 – Electronic Extensions Not Accepted Report

To determine why a return or extension is listed on the report, look at the Acceptance Code Column (A/R or Acc Code depending on the report) and the Transmission Date Column (Tran Date). If there is an R in the Acceptance Code column, the return/extension has been rejected. Review your business acknowledgements report for the reject code, or use the View Entity Status feature from the Business Main Menu to determine why the return/extension was rejected.

If a return does not have a code in the Acceptance column, look at the Transmission Date column. If there is not a date listed, this return/extension has not yet been transmitted. You will need to transmit the return/extension.

All 1065 and 1120-S returns and extensions must be transmitted or postmarked by midnight tonight to be considered timely filed.

**Rejected returns that are corrected and resubmitted within 10 days and are still considered timely filed.

**Rejected extensions that are corrected and resubmitted within 5 days and are still considered timely filed.
