Check all of the boxes that apply to your office.

*It is a good idea to at least match the forms you have selected for your ERO, if you are unsure, it does not hurt to check all of them.

  • We recommend checking both the EMS & the MEF boxes, since the IRS is in the process of switching formats. When selecting them for the first form, the boxes will already be checked for the other forms.

  • If you wish to do extensions you must check the box for ETD.

  • After you check each box, the website will take a few moments to process, so wait until “processing” disappears from the upper right-hand side of the screen before you select the next box.

Be sure to make a note of the tracking number (in case you don’t get your EMS password letter and you have to give the tracking number to the IRS). We encourage clients to print this page.
