We’ve worked closely with our customers and the IRS to make UltraTax CS one of the most comprehensive and powerful tax preparation applications available. Below are links to some resources that will help you prepare for e-filing this tax season.

UltraTax CS E-Filing Reminders

Historically, April 11 through 15 is the highest transmission period for returns and extensions for the IRS. During this period, transmissions and acknowledgments might be delayed.

We recommend preparers transmit returns and extensions as early as possible prior to April 10, instead of transmitting a large batch of returns and extensions on April 15.

Note that Form 1040 returns and Form 4868 extensions are due at 11:59 PM local time on Wednesday, April 15, 2015. When e-filing on April 15, we recommend that preparers transmit returns to us at least one hour prior to the deadline.

Please see the following list for critical IRS e-filing dates.
