How long does the S-Corporation election filing take?


S-Corporation Election Filing Service


After providing all required signatures, which you can do easily online, we will submit your election to the IRS often within one same business day, and send you an e-mail confirming that we have done so. Then within 60 days, the IRS will send you a postal mail informing you of the acceptance or non-acceptance of your election and when it will take effect.

If it has been more than 60 days since your election was submitted and you still have not received an IRS notice of acceptance or non-acceptance, you can follow up with the IRS by calling 800-829-4933.
