Deadline is tomorrow (July 15) and my documents will be delivered on Thursday (July 16). Yet I managed to hand it over to my nearest UPS (the private company, not USPS) today (July 14). Will it be accepted?

As long as you used one of the IRS approved methods from a private delivery service by the deadline date they will count it as timely mailing.

Taxpayers or Tax Professionals can use certain private delivery services designated by the IRS to meet the "timely mailing as timely filing/paying" rule for tax returns and payments. These private delivery services include only the following:


  1. UPS Next Day Air Early AM

  2. UPS Next Day Air

  3. UPS Next Day Air Saver

  4. UPS 2nd Day Air

  5. UPS 2nd Day Air A.M.

  6. UPS Worldwide Express Plus

  7. UPS Worldwide Express.

Follow link for DHL and FedEx options, excluded for brevity above.
