The IRS allows 5 days to retransmit returns that were sent prior to the due date but were rejected.
If the filing deadline is April 15, then you would have until April 20 to correct a return that was
submitted before the deadline, but then rejected.
If the taxpayer chooses not to have the electronic portion of the return corrected and transmitted
to the IRS or if it cannot be accepted for processing by the IRS, the taxpayer must file a paper return.
In order to be filed timely, the paper return must be filed by the later of the due date of the return or ten calendar days after the IRS gives notification that the electronic portion of the return is rejected of that it cannot be accepted for processing.
The paper return should include an explanation of why the return is being filed after the due date.
