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 720 for Tax Year (TY) 2015. 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

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.
