E-file Provider Services


New Sign-In Options Now Available

E-Services transitioned to a new sign-in system that requires new users to register or sign in with ID.me, the current IRS credential service provider.

Existing e-Services users may continue to sign in with an active IRS username and don’t need to take any action at this time.

E-Services applications will prompt all users to accept the terms of agreement the first time signing in after July 24, 2022.

E-file Application

Use our online e-file application to become an authorized e-file provider or view and update existing applications

It is only through an approved e-file application that tax professionals, who are Electronic Return Originators (EROs), Circular 230 Practitioners, or Reporting Agents (RAs), can gain access to the Transcript Delivery System. EROs must e-file five or more returns in a tax season to be eligible. Circular 230 Practitioners need only apply and be approved.
