Accessing the Schemas and Business Rules

Distribution of the schemas and business rules is now through the Registered User Portal and your e-services mailbox. This mailbox is part of the Secure Object Repository (SOR). Users will access their mailbox in their existing e-services account to pick up the schema and business rules packages.

Additional Information

We package the XML Schemas by form type and version number. Each package includes "DIFF" files that identify the difference between the schema version listed above and the previous schema version.
We also package the Business Rules by form type and version number. Each package includes two different formats that contain identical information – Adobe (.pdf) and comma separated file (.csv). A column within the file identifies changes made from the previous version.

Key schema changes are listed below:

  • All: Changes to shared forms.
  • Forms 990x, 990-T, 1120-POL: new shared forms 7204 and 7213.
  • Forms 990x and 990-T: new file K2K3SharedTypes.
