IRS Delay in Processing
Subject: Delay in Processing Form(s) 1040, 1040-X, and 1040-ES Payments Submitted via Modernized e-File
Attention: Return Transmitters and Authorized IRS e-file Providers/EROs
We identified a delay in processing Form 1040 balance due, Form 1040-X amended, and Form 1040-ES estimated tax payment requests submitted via Modernized e-File. The issue has been resolved, and pending payments are being processed. The taxpayer's account will be credited with the original requested payment date(s). Taxpayers should not re-submit these payments.
If a taxpayer re-submitted any of these payment requests due to the delay in processing they may cancel them by calling 1-888-353-4537. Cancellation requests must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, at least two business days prior to the scheduled payment date.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
