Electronic filing requirements for individual income tax professionals 

Paid tax preparers who prepare, or employ people to prepare, 50 or more individual income tax returns  a year are required to file   electronically. If they prepare 50 or more returns in a taxable year, then for each year after, they must file all individual income tax returns electronically. 

Filing Options

You can submit all return and payment information using one of these free filing options, or separately by making ACH credit payments. For details on initiating ACH credit, see our Electronic Payment Guide. All systems are safe, secure, and available 24/7.

You can also use approved commercial tax preparation software for corporation income tax and pass-through entity returns. 

If electronic filing causes undue hardship?

You may request a temporary waiver by submitting an Electronic Filing Waiver Request, citing your specific hardship. All waivers are temporary and must be renewed annually.
