Error Code F8868-029: --------- ERRORS ---------;Not on time: /AuxData/TransInfo/ElectronicPostMark: Form 8868, Part II, Application for extension must be received on or before the extended due date of the return to which the extension is requested. (value 2011-08-16T07:22:52-05:00, rule F8868-029)

The 8868 Application for Extension of Time to file an Exempt Organization Return was electronically submitted after the due date of the return.

Currently, the IRS is not accepting electronically filed extensions submitted after the due date or extended due date. This is true even if the return is still within the 5 day perfection period for electronically filed extension rejections.

The 8868 must be paper filed. We recommend attaching text or writing across the top of the extension that an attempt was made to resubmit within the 5 day window, but it did not pass for acceptance.

Note: Refer to Publication 4163 on how to file a paper extension once the efile is erroneously rejected.
