We start transmitting files to the IRS/SSA as soon as the FIRE production site is available to accept e-filings for the 2016 Tax Season. We file daily as orders are submitted until the end of March, so your Federal Copy will be electronically submitted to the IRS/SSA as it is completed and submitted on the site. You will receive an email notification once your order has been submitted to the IRS/SSA. Starting the first week of April, forms are e-filed every Wednesday morning through the end of the year.
However, please note that the deadline to file electronically for all 1095, 1098, 1099 and W-2 forms is March 31 and for the 1042-S form it is March 15. In cases where the deadline falls on a weekend or a Federal holiday, the deadline is automatically extended to the next business day.
