Notes

  • For filing deadlines and other information related to 1041 electronic filing, refer to IRS Publication 4163, Modernized e-File (MeF) Information for Authorized IRS e-file Providers for Business Returns.
  • We recommend that preparers transmit electronic files to Thomson Reuters at least one hour before the filing deadline.
  • The IRS considers returns that are re-filed electronically during the applicable time frame to be timely-filed returns.
  • The grace period starts at the time of the rejection and is never extended for weekends, holidays, or end-of-the-year cutoff.
  • If a rejected return cannot be retransmitted electronically, see Resubmitting electronically filed returns and extensions (FAQ).
