Authorized IRS e-file Providers (Providers) may use only other Authorized IRS e-file Providers to perform IRS e-file activities, including but not limited to origination and transmission of electronic submission. For example, Transmitters must ensure they are transmitting only for Providers. Providers should request other Providers provide information to ascertain that they are Authorized IRS e-file Providers. Care is necessary to safeguard IRS e-file.
A Provider can print a summary of its e-file application via e-services at IRS.gov and provide it to other Providers as needed. Providers can also confirm EROs using the Authorized IRS e-file Provider Locator at IRS.gov. If an ERO can not be found it may still be an Authorized IRS e-file Provider as EROs may elect not to be included on the Authorized IRS e-file Provider Locator. The IRS can advise if the firm is an Authorized IRS e-file Provider only if it is on the Authorized IRS e-file Provider Locator. If you need assistance to search the Locator, contact the IRS by calling e-help toll free at (866) 255-0654.
