What happens when my extension gets rejected and the deadline passes? 64 views | Last modified 3/2/2020 7:15:02 AM EST
In this case, you have 5 days from the original transmission date to correct and re-transmit the extension. 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. Use this option only if the due date of the return has passed and you had filed the original extension before the due date of the return.
