CCH Software News - October 15, 2020, Extension Filing Deadline

Dear CCH Customer:

The extended due date for 2019 Individual (1040) and Corporation (1120) returns is Thursday, October 15, 2020. Information for electronically filing returns through the deadline is as follows.

Timely Filed

To be timely filed, CCH must receive your returns before 11:59 PM CDT on Thursday, October 15, 2020.

Note: To avoid processing issues with the taxing authorities, we validate all returns before submission to the taxing authorities. If we stop returns for schema validation errors (Status 490), you must review and resubmit these returns in a timely fashion.

Important: Linked state returns are not transmitted until the IRS acknowledgement is returned for the federal return. Because certain states such as Illinois, Oregon, and Wisconsin no longer honor the vendor timestamp as the state transmission time, we further recommend you release your state returns for transmission separately from the federal return, particularly if you cannot get the full return filed by 9:00 PM CDT. This allows the state return to transmit without the return of the federal acknowledgment. The easiest way to submit the state return separately from the federal return is to uncheck the federal return on the export window.

Individual

Timely Filing of Rejected Returns

If the IRS rejects any of your returns, they will be considered timely filed if you resubmit them electronically and obtain approval from the IRS by Tuesday, October 20, 2020. If your returns continue to get rejected after this date, you will have five days to paper file the return to be considered timely filed.

Please monitor the e-File Status System using the filter Not Accepted/All to verify that all returns have been transmitted and are accepted prior to 8:00 AM CDT on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.
