Filing Deadline for Individual Returns and Extensions

The deadline for submitting timely 2017 individual income tax returns and extensions is Tuesday, April 17th, 2018. Returns and extensions will be considered timely if they are postmarked by April 17th or electronically filed by 11:59 P.M. on April 17th. To ensure that all transmissions are considered timely filed, please have all returns and extensions transmitted to TaxSlayer Pro no later than 11:59 P.M. your local time on Tuesday, April 17th. We advise finalizing and transmitting all returns and extensions well before the midnight deadline.

Individual returns and extensions that are rejected by the IRS can be corrected and then re-transmitted within five (5) days and still be considered timely filed. All corrected individual returns and extensions must be transmitted no later than 11:59 P.M. your local time on Sunday, April 22, 2018.

Returns Not Accepted Reports:

We highly recommend running a Returns Not Accepted Report, a State Returns Not Accepted Report and an Extensions Not Accepted Report before the filing deadline to ensure all returns and extensions have been transmitted and accepted.

To run and print these reports on the transmitting computer, from the Main Menu of the tax program select:

9 – Reports

5 – Return/States/Extensions Not Accepted

1 – Returns Not Accepted Report

3 – State Returns Not Accepted Report

5 – Print Extensions Not Accepted Report

Please note  – these reports will only display returns that have been marked for electronic filing with no acknowledgement or returns that have not been accepted.
