How Tax Information is Transmitted When You E-File
You don't e-file directly to the IRS. To file your tax return to the IRS you must go through one of the companies that the IRS has partnered with (called IRS e-file Partners). You use one of these companies to transmit your tax information to the IRS.
IRS industry partners authorized to provide e-file services include:
- Paid preparers
- Electronic Return Originators (ERO)
- A paid preparer may also be an Electronic Return Originator.
- Third party transmitters.
