Annual Self-Certification and E-file Application URL Registration: A Must-Do for Authorized IRS e-file Providers
As we step into October, it’s time for a crucial reminder for all Online Providers. The annual self-certification questions have to be completed to ensure compliance with the IRS e-file security, privacy, and business standards as outlined in Publication 1345.
Who Needs to Self-Certify?
If you’re an Authorized IRS e-file Provider and own or operate a website(s) that collects, transmits, stores, or processes taxpayer information, this reminder is for you. The IRS requires you to register those URL(s) on your e-file Application. This registration is an integral part of the annual certification process.
How to Register Your URL(s)
If you haven’t registered your URL(s) yet, it’s simple. Just select the URL collection link on the e-file Application information page menu to register.
