Choose User Type
This is the main user type within our system and is normally an employee of the company filing the return, or the owner of the business. This type of user can file any type of return indirectly using our Quarterly Express Plus Filing Service. Signature options are normally using IRS allowed PINs, or performing signature image capture within our product
ERO (Electronic Returns Originator)
An Electronic return originator is typically a tax specialist who operates as a CPA, payroll agent or a general tax professional. An ERO is required to use their own EFIN to file returns using their Practitioner PIN and the taxpayer’s PIN as a valid signature. An ERO would only file returns indirectly using our software.
A Reporting Agent is authorized to file payroll returns for their clients as a result of filing forms 8655 with the IRS. Most reporting agents are payroll providers who also are required to use their own EFIN, and obtain a Reporting Agent PIN for their signature on returns. A reporting agent can file direct or indirect using our software. Direct filers would need to obtain an ETIN also from the IRS.
PEO (Professional Employer Organization)
A Professional Employer Organization is authorized to file their customers payroll returns under a single EIN. A Certified PEO can use our software to report their customers information on the Schedule R which is required. PEO’s can sign their returns using a 10 digit signature PIN, or signature image capture within our software. PEO’s can file direct and Indirect using our software. A Direct PEO would be required to obtain their own EFIN and ETIN as well.
