This year, the shutdown begins on Saturday, November 18, 2023, to prepare the system for the upcoming filing season. During the shutdown, DOR will not receive any state or federal e-filed returns. Paper forms can be filed during this time until electronic filing reopens. Although the IRS has not announced a date for reopening MeF for personal income, it generally occurs in mid- to late January. Time to Submit the Annual Certification of Entity Tax Status ApplicationThe application for the Annual Certification of Entity Tax Status is available and open until the April 1, 2024 deadline.
