This weekend’s outages for IRS e-Services have been postponed.

The extended delay will allow for some additional improvements to take place in the final product, the IRS said. A new outage date has not been set.

Until further notice, all e-Services tools and applications are available to registered users, except for AIR users. The Affordable Care Act Information Return (AIR) participants will be unable to submit new or change existing Transmitter Control Code applications until this platform upgrade takes place.

The planned outage, when it occurs, will allow for the e-Services suite of tools to be transferred to a new digital platform.

Originally, the outage (see “IRS Schedules e-Services outages”) was planned for Aug. 17 to Aug. 21.
