What if my return is still pending or rejected on April 18, 2017?
No worries. Here's what to do:
If your return is pending
You should be fine. Your submitted e-filed return doesn't need to be accepted on April 18, 2017 for it to be considered on-time.
- As long as you transmitted your return by 11:59 p.m. local time on April 18, 2017, you should be fine.
If your return is rejected
If the status of your return is 'Rejected' on April 18, 2017, you'll have through April 23, 2017 to re-submit your federal return by e-file, or mail your return. More info and instructions
