What Is E-Service?
E-service means paperless tax returns. No more Forms 8453! When you sign up for Taxsoftware.com e-services, you can use a practitioner PIN method to e-file. This eliminates the Form 8453 requirements for all forms. Normally, you need to fax a Form 8453S for Form 1120s, Form 8453C for Form 1120, or Form 8453EO for Form 1120POL, and mail a Form 8453P for Form 1065, Form 8453 for Form 1040, or Form 8453F for Form 1041. With Taxsoftware.com e-services you sign up for a practioner PIN and just enter your EFIN, PTIN, and PIN when you e-file. Then no Form 8453 is required. For more information see:
Practitioner PIN Method for e-file
After you e-file a Information Returns tax return you get Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) matching. TIN matching is a pre-filing service offered to payers and/or authorized agents who submit any of six information returns subject to backup withholding (Forms 1099-B, INT, DIV, OID, PATR, and MISC). With Interactive TIN Matching authorized payers can match up to 25 payee TIN and name combinations against IRS records prior to submitting an information return. In order to participate in TIN matching, payers must be listed in the IRS Payer Account File (PAF) database. If your firm has not filed information returns with the IRS in one of the past two tax years, this application will not be available to you at this time.
After you e-file 5 IRS Form 1040/1040A/1040EZ/1120/1120S/1041/1065 tax returns next year, you will get access to the other IRS e-services products, such as:
Disclosure Authorization: Eligible tax professionals may complete authorization forms, view and modify existing forms, and receive acknowledgement of accepted submissions immediately - all online. Disclosure authorization allows tax professionals to electronically submit Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, and Form 8821, Tax Information Authorization. This e-service expedites processing and issues a real-time acknowledgment of accepted submissions.
Electronic Account Resolution: Electronic account resolution allows tax professionals to expedite closure on clients’ account problems by electronically sending/receiving account-related inquiries. Tax professionals may inquire about individual or business account problems, refunds, installment agreements, missing payments, or notices. Tax professionals must have a power of attorney on file before accessing a client’s account. The IRS response will be delivered to an electronic secure mailbox within 72 hours.
Transcript Delivery System: Use the transcript delivery system to request tax return transcripts, account transcripts, and a record of account for your individual and business taxpayers. Resolve your clients need for account information quickly in a secure, online session. Tax professionals must have authorization on file with the IRS before accessing a client's account.
