Reminder for Disaster Victims, Other Taxpayers: E-File Closes Nov. 18

The IRS reminds taxpayers who want to file a 2016 tax return electronically to do so by Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017. This includes taxpayers in disaster areas. Taxpayers will still be able to file paper tax returns after that date.

The IRS will shut down their e-file system after Nov. 18 to perform annual maintenance. The agency will also be reprogramming the system for the upcoming 2018 tax-filing season. So, any taxpayer needing to file after Nov. 18 will need to do so on paper.

Most people already filed their 2016 federal tax returns. However, certain taxpayers qualify for an extension until Jan. 31, 2018. This includes taxpayers who meet three criteria. They:

  • live in a federally-declared disaster area.
  • have a U.S. tax filing obligation.
  • previously filed a six-month extension of time to file their federal tax return.

This filing reminder affects these taxpayers:

  • Wildfire victims in parts of California
  • Hurricane and tropical storm victims in:
    • Georgia
    • Florida
    • Puerto Rico
    • U.S. Virgin Islands
    • Parts of Texas
    • Parts of Louisiana
    • Parts of South Carolina
