IRS e-File System Maintenance
The IRS will be upgrading their e-file system to a new platform during the following periods:
- Thursday, July 18, 2019, midnight Eastern time through Monday, July 22, 2019, noon Eastern time, and
- Saturday, August 3, 2019, midnight Eastern time through Monday, August 5, 2019, noon Eastern time.
During these periods, the IRS will not be processing any e-file transmissions or acknowledgements. Drake Tax and Drake Accounting users will still be able to transmit files to Drake Software during this shutdown period but should expect acknowledgements for data transmitted during these periods to be delayed until the e-file system upgrade is complete.
