Wolters Kluwer -- CCH Update on 9/15/2020 efiling Situation

Wolters Kluwer CCH Abatement Update Related to 9/15/2020 efiling situation

Just a heads up for all the CCH users who were not able to efile their tax returns due on September 15, 2020. CCH just sent out a notice that they’ve been in contact with the IRS and that this qualifies as “reasonable cause.” Therefore, the returns will be considered timely filed if they were filed on September 16, 2020. No further action should be necessary on those returns at this time.

Here is the message they just sent out:
Dear Valued Customer,

As a follow up to yesterday’s communication, we wanted to provide you an update on the actions that we are taking to remedy the issues caused by the disruption with our electronic filing system.

Please know that we have been in contact with the IRS regarding the situation on September 15. It is our understanding that the nature of the disruption with our electronic filing system provides “reasonable cause” for any returns due on 9-15-20, but filed on 9-16-20 due to this issue and accordingly, those returns should be considered filed timely except for the running of interest on any tax payments that were due on 9-15-20.

No further action should be required on those returns at this time.

In the event that any of your clients receive a late filing notice, CCH is prepared to provide a letter supporting this reason for late filing. Customers may request the letter pursuant to our Abatement process: Prepare an email request and send it to: abatement@cch.com Insert your Firm Name / Abatement in the subject line Our dedicated internal Abatement Lead will reply directly to you We are also sending specific requests to all impacted jurisdictions and will provide additional guidance as we receive their feedback.

We appreciate your continued patience as we work through this situation.

Respectfully,
Jim McGinnis
EVP & General Manager, TAA Professional Market
