Electronic filing requirements for individual income tax professionals
Paid tax preparers who prepare, or employ people to prepare, 50 or more individual income tax returns a year are required to file electronically. If they prepare 50 or more returns in a taxable year, then for each year after, they must file all individual income tax returns electronically.
Return and payment information is required to be submitted using these systems or separately by making ACH Credit payments for all required payments and returns. All of these systems are safe, secure, and available 24/7.
If electronic filing causes undue hardship?
You may request a temporary waiver by submitting an Electronic Filing Waiver Request, citing your specific hardship. All waivers are temporary and must be renewed annually.
