There are five ways to file that the IRS recognizes as providing proof of time of filing. 1. USPS Registered mail – You must keep your receipt to prove time of mailing. 2. USPS Certified mail – You must keep the green card proving time of delivery. 3. IRS approved e-filing – You must retain your electronic receipt as proof of filing. 4. IRS approved Private Delivery Services such as DHL Express Same-Day, Fed Ex Overnight, UPS Next Day or Second Day services. Other services from these Private carriers are not acceptable. 5. USPS Regular First Class mail. You must make a copy of your envelope showing postmark, but this is the least reliable method.
