How to delay the processing of your order

  • Updated

eFileMyForms customers have the option to delay the processing of their orders. This can be useful if you want your order to be filed on a specific date.

The delayed order process is done during checkout. The order you want to delay must be in your Shopping Cart before you can begin the process. For more information on how to place an order read our How to place an order article.

  1. On the Shopping Cart page make sure all the forms you want delayed are listed. Once all forms are in your cart, click Secure Checkout.

Important Details:

  • The date selected is the earliest date that the order will be processed. It can still take 1-2 days to print, mail, and eFile after this date.
  • If a date is selected that is past the eFileMyForms Order Completion Deadline, then eFileMyForms will override your selection and process the order before the deadline.
  • This option only delays the processing of your tax forms, your credit card will be charged when the order is placed.
