IRS plans service outage Aug. 17-21

Written on Aug 06, 2017

The IRS has announced of a planned outage of all e-Services tools from 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17 through 6 a.m. Monday, Aug. 21. During that time, users will be unable to access the Transcript Delivery System and Secure Object Repository, Registration and TIN Matching. All applications also will then be offline until Aug. 22.

Affordable Care Act Information Return filers may resume submission of applications for Transmitter Control Codes starting on Aug. 22. The application process for AIR users has been offline since July because of the e-Services platform transition.

Also on Aug. 21, a redesigned landing page for e-Services will launch with a new look and feel.

The scheduled outage will allow the IRS to complete the transition of e-Services to a new platform that will improve the look and feel of applications and complete a multi-year technological upgrade. The agency will also perform testing during that four-day period.
