Turbotax extension

Posted By on Thu, Apr 19, 2007 at 10:43 AM

Arkansas is following the lead of other tax authorities and extending the state income tax deadline until midnight April 19 for people using Turbotax and related tax preparation software. There was a server problem on tax filing day that has prompted the extension.

The release is on the jump. And all well and good. But what about other folks with legitimate filing day problems -- dog eats return, etc.

DF&A NEWS RELEASE

Taxpayers, Tax Professionals with TurboTax Problems
Have Until Midnight April 19 to e-file

Taxpayers who were unable to e-file their Arkansas Individual Income tax returns Tuesday using Intuit Inc. software products have until midnight on Thursday, April 19, to file their returns, the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration  announced Wednesday.  Last-minute tax filers were affected by Intuit, Inc. company server problems on Tuesday evening, and they or their accountants may have been unable to electronically file returns. Intuit confirmed Wednesday that those problems had been resolved, and it was successfully accepting e-file returns on Wednesday.  This is the same extension granted by the Internal Revenue Service.

The company said affected taxpayers and tax professionals include those using “TurboTax,”  “ProSeries,” “Lacerte” and Intuit’s Free File offering,“TurboTax Freedom.”

Intuit product users who were unable to file their returns through the company’s servers Tuesday should e-file as soon as possible. The State will not apply late filing penalties to taxpayers who were affected by this problem.

Arkansas has already received 46 thousand more e-filed returns than had been filed through the end of April, 2006.  Total e-filed returns to date exceed 2006 processing totals for e-file by 23 thousand.

E-file and Free File will remain available through Oct. 15, 2007, to 
taxpayers who have requested a six-month filing extension.
