The October 16th filing deadline marks the LAST DAY the IRS E-file system will accept 2016 tax returns filed via e-file. What this means is any taxpayer who files their income tax return on October 17th or later must file a paper return by mail. One drawback (especially for those expecting a refund) is that it would take 6 - 8 weeks for the IRS to process the return as opposed to the approximately up to 21 day timeline when e-filed.
