What does it mean that you’re an Authorized IRS e-file Provider?

Tax professionals accepted by the IRS into its electronic filing program are called Authorized IRS e-File Providers. Before being accepted into the program, the IRS conducts a rigorous suitability check of the Principals of the organization. This background check may include a credit check, a tax compliance check, a criminal background check, and a check for prior non-compliance with IRS e-file requirements. Also, each year, we are required to complete testing with the IRS to ensure that our software is operating correctly and securely. You can confirm that our company is an Authorized IRS e-File Provider on the IRS website
