E-File Extension Rejected
Filing for an extension through H&R Block’s online products is typically a seamless process. But what happens if your e-file extension is rejected? Although you don’t need to submit a lot of information to e-file an extension, it could be rejected if you enter any details incorrectly.
One example of these errors might be a typo in one of your numbers, such as a date of birth or Social Security number. Or, perhaps you have a mismatch in information that the IRS has on file, such as a new address if you’ve recently moved.
Usually, you should be able to return to the online product and follow the instructions on how to correct any errors. Then you can try to e-file your extension again.
IRS Extension Request Rejected – What to Do If Your Errors Can’t Be Fixed
Not able to correct the issues that caused the IRS extension request rejection? You should file a paper Form 4868 and mail it by the tax due date to avoid any potential penalties. As part of the process, you’ll estimate your taxes owed.
Keep in mind, an extension only gives you additional time to prepare your return. It won’t give you extra time to pay your tax bill if you owe money to the IRS. Because of this, you should also send payment for any taxes due along with your extension before the tax deadline.
