UPDATE: ALL DELAYED FORMS ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR EFILING.


  • The IRS will accept most efiled tax returns by January 30, 2013, with the exception of those that include one of the delayed tax forms listed below.
  • What this means to you: Prepare and efile Your 2012 Tax Return now on efile.com. The online software will select the IRS forms you need, based on your tax information. If you require one of the delayed forms, the efile.com software will let you know how to proceed. For help, contact support.
