Waiting on Extension Acceptance so I can File the final 1040. Gripe

Level 8

Last Return before end of the day/on time season.

So I filed an Extension and now can't file the 1040 until the extension is accepted/rejected by IRS as I didn't expect the Form 8879 by end of day.

They were being accepted very quickly earlier today but now things seem to be Stuck in cyber land.

It's like watching a pot of water to boil.

@JRC I wouldn't worry about it. We have 3 days after receipt of that to e-file.

I think you can uncheck the extension box and then you can efile the actual return. it used to work like that at least

Thank you for the info. I'm out of office now 😭 will file tomorrow.

I had a couple of extensions to take care of late in the day.  They had some significant balance dues and I had a heck of a time getting them to process.  I had some kind of screwy message that I needed to finish the extension before I could convert the extension for e-filing.  Finally unchecked the boxes for the 1040 e-filing to get it to fly.  Not the adventure I was looking for today.
