EFIN Verification Process

Follow the instructions below to submit a copy of your IRS e-file Application Summary with your electronic filing identification number (EFIN) and tracking number for verification. For multiple offices, each location must have a unique EFIN verified. After submission, check the verification status in your TaxAct account. We'll notify you via email if your EFIN is rejected.
