Authorized IRS e-file Provider Locator Service For Tax Professionals
About the Database and Locator Service

To opt in or out of the locator service, see "Updating the Authorized IRS e-file Application" below.
How to Search for a Provider
This interactive search allows you to enter the first three, four or all five digits of a zip code. Entering the first three digits of a zip code will search a wider geographical area than entering 4 or 5 digits.
Example: In Nebraska, a search using the first 3 digits of the zip code (e.g., 681) will display Providers for most of Omaha. A search using all 5 digits (e.g., 68110) will display Providers for a specific post office in Omaha.
Search results will be sorted in alphabetical order by the business name.
Note: The inclusion in this database does not constitute any endorsement by the IRS of the e-file Providers listed in this database or any of the products or services that they provide. You should always be sure to conduct your own due diligence when selecting an e-file Provider.
Choose Provider Type
Enter the first 3, 4 or all 5 numbers of a zip code
Information about each Provider is stored in the database as a long string of text or a "record" with each element of the record separated by a delimiter (e.g., "IRS"|"1111 Constitution Ave NW"|).
The delimited text files contain "records" grouped by state or the District of Columbia. These text files can be imported into database software packages and used to create mailing lists.
Updating the Authorized IRS e-file Application
The IRS e-file Application is available through the Internet-based business tools called “e-services”. Existing IRS e-file participants can also use it to update their application to opt in or out of the locator service. This is done by selecting "yes" or "no" on the Programs Applying for page of the application.
