Mef is Operational

Mef is Operational

At 9:00 am ET on Thursday, February 16th, we will re-enable Mef for the vast majority of our federal returns.  IRS has indicated that their issue has been resolved and their backlog has been cleared.

All legacy returns transmitted through 9:00 am ET tomorrow should be acknowledged by approximately 1:00 pm local service center time (typically your local time).

We will continue to monitor Mef performance and we are in contact with IRS daily.
