This is applicable to those forms where “E-File, Print & Mail” or “E-File Only” were selected.
We start e-filing with the IRS/SSA as soon as the IRS opens the FIRE (File Information Returns Electronically) site, which occurs in mid to late January. This is the earliest the IRS will accept electronic files. We will file each business day (multiple times per day during busy days) through March 31, 2021. After March 31, 2021, we will process orders within one business day through April 30, 2021. Starting May 1, 2021 we will process orders twice weekly, every Tuesday and Thursday morning through 11/02/2021. If you order later in the day on Tuesday or Thursday, your forms will be e-filed the following Tuesday or Thursday.
