Our E-filing Deadline: 5:00 PM Eastern Time, Tuesday, January 17, 2017
The IRS filing deadline for Organizations with a Fiscal Year end date of 8/31/2016 is Midnight Eastern Time on Tuesday, January 17, 2017. Due to the large volume of returns we are receiving, we will accept returns for processing until 5:00 pm Eastern Standard Time on Tuesday, January 17, 2017. Returns that are received after 5:00 pm will be processed if we have time.
In order for a return to be considered "Ready To Go" by 5:00 pm, the following conditions must be met:
    1. The return must be verified and marked as complete in the 990 Online system
    2. We must have received payment of the 990 Online Usage Fee. (Not applicable to Form 990-EZ/8868 filers)
    3. The Authentication Process must be complete. (Not applicable to Form 8868 filers)
    4. We must have received, and uploaded, the Form 8543-EO Signature Form (Not applicable to Form 8868 filers)
If all four of these things are done by 5:00 PM (eastern time), we will be able to transmit the return to the IRS by Midnight. If these things are not done by 5:00 PM, we will try our best to get the return to the IRS on time, but we will not make any promises.
