Stand-Alone Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)

    Beginning January 2017, fiduciaries will have the ability to submit an Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) request for extension and estimate payments using tax preparation software. These payment requests will be accepted as “stand-alone”, and can be submitted separately from the e-filed return. The return can be filed at a later date.
