Direct and Third Party E-File
We provide both the IRS A2A and IFA systems. Our A2A system is extremely easy to use taking the stress out of electronic filing.
The IFA (Internet Filing Application) allows electronic transmission from your office direct to the IRS. You need to have a valid ETIN in addition to your EFIN from the IRS but if you want full control over the entire electronic filing process then utilizing the IFA system may be an option for you.
Electronic filing is part of Wintax. The data from the return does not need to be reentered. Prompts during return preparation collect additional information that is required to efile. Access Electronic Filing from the main menu of Wintax and returns are transmitted in just a couple of steps.
The feature visually displays the readiness of a return to be efiled. A “green light” shows that the return should be accepted by the IRS. If the program detects a potential problem then a “red” or “yellow light” appears and a report will make recommendations or report problems.
