Regardless of whether the deadline has passed, if you filed an extension form on time and the IRS rejects it, you get five calendar days to correct and resubmit the form electronically to the IRS. This is called the Perfection period.

To learn more about the Perfection period, click here.

If you are still unable to file electronically during these 5 days, we provide the option to download a letter that you may postal mail to the IRS to request a waiver from penalty. 

Note: Use this option only if the due date of the return has passed and you’ve filed the original extension before the due date of the return.
