When you complete an eFiled federal tax extension using our service, you will be notified of the IRS status of your extensions acceptance in the following ways:

  • Email - You will be notified via email (sent to the email used to open the account) within moments of the IRS responding to the status of your extension. Be sure to check your spam/junk folder as well.

  • SMS - If you opt in to our SMS notification at checkout, you will be notified via text message to your mobile number within seconds of the IRS responding on the status of your extension.


  • Account - Log back into your account and click on "Tax Filings" at the top right of the screen.  Click on the extension type you'd like to view, Business or Personal, and click , "view details" to see the IRS Status/Transmission ID and Electronic Postmark.  Keep these details handy in the event you need to provide proof of this federal extension to a tax professional or the IRS.
