Usually, the IRS takes 24 to 48 hours to review and accept your transmitted forms. However, depending on the volume of returns received, it could take a little longer. We will keep you informed about the status of the extension via email. You can also check the status of your extension from your Dashboard.
Note: To get your extension approved and to be marked as submitted "on time" by the IRS, we highly recommend you submit your extension request before midnight on the IRS deadline.
