17624: Preparing for the Individual Deadline

Deadlines + Extensions

How do I prepare for the individual deadline?  


Deadline Reminders

  • e-File all finished returns by midnight local time. Drake Software strongly suggests that you e-file several hours before the deadline to ensure a timely filing.
  • If more time is needed, file an extension. You can now generate extensions in a batch. Remember that an extension does not provide more time to pay any amount due. 
  • Check for pending acknowledgements to ensure that the returns are transmitted successfully.
  • Verify that all returns and extensions are accepted by the IRS or State. If a return is rejected, it must be corrected within the perfection period, or it is considered to be a late filing.
  • Solutions for common rejects are available in the Knowledge Base.
  • Drake Support is available to help!
