I am late filing 2018 but need to get them "registered" asap because I am in need of a mortgage. The return is complete and the check is written. Can anyone help?
You can no longer e-file a 2018 tax return. You have to print it, sign it, and file it by mail.
Tax professionals can e-file tax returns for past years, but all e-filing is closed until January 27 while the IRS changes over for the new tax year.
Instead of mailing the return .... take 2 copies to a local IRS office ... they will accept one for processing and stamp your copy accepted for processing ... that should be good for the mortgage broker.
