IRS Announces a Grace Period for Form 2290 E-filers Until September 7th

The Internal Revenue Service has just recently released a statement saying that they will be shutting down their filing servers during Labor Day Weekend. Now, what does this mean? The IRS wants all e-filers to take note that they will have up until 1 pm (Eastern Time) on August 31st to complete their Form 2290’s if their vehicle’s first month of use was either in July or August. If the e-filer submits Form 2290 by 1 pm on August 31st then they will be able to receive their Stamped Schedule 1 by Tuesday, September 4th when the servers are up and running again. However,  the IRS is giving a three-day grace period for e-filers unable to file their Form 2290 by 1 pm on August 31st. E-filers will not be penalized if they are able to electronically submit their Form 2290 to the IRS by September 7th, 2012.
Please note that this server shutdown will not affect those intending to paper file their Form 2290. Therefore, all paper filings must be postmarked by August 31, 2012, or they will be considered delinquent and a penalty will be assessed.
