FAQs Regarding Form 8955-SSA - How does the IRS electronic filing system work?

Form 8955-SSA can be submitted electronically using third-party software and the IRS Filing Information Returns Electronically (FIRE) system. Filers submitting Form 8955-SSA electronically through FIRE will need:

  • Software to create files in the proper format for filing electronically to the IRS.
  • A Transmitter Control Code (TCC) obtained by submitting Form 4419 (Application for Filing Information Returns Electronically). Note that if the transmitter already uses FIRE for submitting other forms, the transmitter will need to get an additional TCC used only for Form 8955-SSA.
  • A FIRE account to log into and use the FIRE system. Visit to create a FIRE account.  If the transmitter already uses FIRE for submitting other forms, an additional FIRE account is not required.
