What does that status mean?

Are you wondering what the different status message means while you are waiting for the filing to get accepted? Below is a list of status messages and their definition in the eFileIL system. These status messages are set by the eFileIL system and not controlled by the electronic filing service providers (EFSP). If you have any questions, please call us at (844) 340-3096 or email [email protected].
