A few years ago, we featured an article on our blog with 7 benefits of using an online and authorized e-file provider. We wanted to share some more great reasons to use a trusted and IRS-approved service when it comes to storing and filing your information return forms.
Safety & Assurance – Your Data Is Well-Protected by a Trusted Provider
In order to become an authorized e-file provider for the IRS, businesses like eFile360 must complete an application process. That application process is aimed at authenticating our business and the people who run it, in order to ensure that your tax information is going to be safe with us.
Once the application is complete, the final step in the authorization process is to pass a suitability check. The IRS conducts this check themselves. The suitability check often involves a credit check, tax compliance check, criminal background check, and a thorough check for any prior non-compliance with IRS e-file requirements.
If the last few years have taught us anything, it’s that we need safe and effective ways to do business online (even with sensitive information). And with cybersecurity threats on the rise, it’s important that you trust your tax information to a firm that is dedicated to safeguarding your data year after year.
As an authorized e-file provider, eFile360 has proven its mastery of the information return filing system and we also bring our own team’s experience to the table for you to benefit from.
Sometimes, the self-service option seems like the easiest or cheapest option, and we offer that as well. But more often than not, there are always one or two outliers while you’re working through your information returns. Maybe you’re not sure if an employee’s retirement distribution is with or without exceptions, or you’re still a little unsure about when you should use a Form 1099-NEC versus Form 1099-MISC.
You could try to sift through the IRS instructions or hope that their call volume is now low enough that you won’t spend precious time on hold. Or you could reach out to our team at eFile360, which specializes in one-on-one assistance with any and all information return questions.
eFile360 was started because we knew there was a better way to organize and file information returns – so we made one.
Eliminate Penalties and Missed Deadlines
The tax code changes constantly, and some years, those changes can take your tax prep from on time to overdue. Because eFile360 is dedicated to providing the best service based on the most up-to-date tax programs and parameters, we can help keep costs down and eliminate the occurrence of penalties, fees, and missed tax deadlines.
Maybe this year you are worrying about how your CPA will be able to handle all your normal financial and tax forms, and now you realize the new changes that lowered the thresholds for the 1099-K filing will also affect you. eFile360 can help you stay unburdened by your tax obligations, especially the ones that were just created or changed.
No Need to Invest in Expensive Software
There are tons of things that are well-suited for a DIY-minded individual. And there was a time when downloading tax software and going through the motions yourself was a great way to get things done quickly. But now, eFile360 gives you all the benefits of a do-it-yourself tool with the support and security that comes with a larger data platform.
eFile360 offers individual form purchases at no more than $3.50 for most forms and $4 for Affordable Care Act forms. We also offer volume pricing, which means you save money by placing high-volume or bulk orders.
We also offer a variety of delivery options: e-file + print & mail, e-file only, and print & mail only.
Our goal is to help you cut down on your information return filing time with a system that gives you confidence that your forms are being filed quickly, correctly, and affordably.
