Apply for an EFIN to Stay Organized before April 16th

Tax Resolution Software

The last thing most tax pros want to do after April 15th is show up for work. Go ahead. Take a day or two off and reward yourself for your hard work during tax season. But if you take too much time, you might be missing out on a way to clean up the mess after tax season.


Mess? What mess?

We’re talking about the mess left in the wake of IRS notices—that incidentally don’t stop filling mailboxes during tax season.

That’s right. The IRS doesn’t sit back and say, “Let’s give these guys a break until after April 15th.” Nope. They continue to process delinquencies, liens, and levies year round. You’re going to lose your spot on the go-to list if you’re not around to respond to taxpayers’ concerns.

When is the best time to promote your tax resolution services? Never stop—promote year round.

Are you just getting started? Is this the first season for your tax preparation business?

Before you open your doors to welcome new clients, here are a few steps you will need to take to legitimize your credentials.


Apply for an EFIN

Applying for an IRS Electronic Filing Identification Number (EFIN) will permit you to file tax returns. There are three phases to this process:

1) Create an IRS E-services Account.

2) Submit your Application.

Upon approval, you’ll be able to log into your account and fill out an online application to become an IRS e-file provider.

3) Pass a Suitability Check.

This may include a credit check, a tax compliance check, and a criminal background check. NOTE: Prior non-compliance with the IRS may be an issue.

Once you’ve completed the process and are approved by the IRS, they’ll send an acceptance letter informing you. It’ll include your EFIN.


Next Steps
