The following links provide information and technical guidance for software developers and transmitters who are interested in developing software for the Modernized e-File (MeF) Form 2290 for Tax Year (TY) 2014. Included are the XML Schemas, Business Rules, Release Memorandum and specific instructions.
Developers and other Authorized IRS e-file Providers can find information on e-filing returns through MeF in the Publication 4163 and Publication 4164. Test Scenarios for Form 2290 can be found on the Modernized e-File (MeF) Assurance Testing System (ATS) Updates page located on irs.gov.
XML Schemas, Business Rules and Release Memo - Throughout the year, multiple versions of these documents may be in use at the same time. Special attention should be paid to the Release Memo issue date and the projected start and end dates for Assurance Testing System (ATS) and Production.
We have created a page to provide additional information relating to the XML standardization effort. This site includes the XML Workbooks and additional helpful items to assist in the transition process. For more information on the XML standardization effort see the Modernized e-File MEF XML Standardization page.
