The IRS has announced the filing season will officially open on Monday, January 28. At that time, the IRS will start processing all submitted returns and providing acknowledgements.
We will begin Controlled Launch testing with the IRS today and continue over the next two weeks. This involves sending batches of submitted e-filed returns for processing. We cannot guarantee which returns will be sent, however if your e-filed returns fall into this testing, you will see acknowledgements for those returns.
