The IRS is advising all tax professionals who have not yet obtained Electronic Filing Identification Numbers (EFINs) to begin the process now so that they will meet the new e-file requirements for 2012. Starting in January, any paid preparer or firm that prepares and files eleven or more returns must use IRS e-file.

To become an Authorized IRS e-file Provider, you must create an e-Services account, submit an EFIN application and pass a suitability check. The approval process can take 45 days or more.

For details, see IRS News Release IR-2011-100.
