    If you are a new user of IRS EFILE service, you need to apply TCC code (Transmitter Control Code) to generate the efile document. You also need to create a FIRE account to upload your file.

  • How to request a transmitter control code (TCC)
  • All transmitters who file information returns electronically through the Filing Information Returns Electronically (FIRE) system are required to request authorization to file electronically by submitting Form 4419, Application for Filing Information Returns Electronically (FIRE). Submit an online fill-in Form 4419 at FIRE to request an original Transmitter Control Code (TCC) 45 days prior to the due date of the return. If your application is approved, a five-character alphanumeric TCC is assigned to your business.

    The IRS encourages transmitters who file for multiple payers to submit one application and use the assigned Transmitter Control Code (TCC) for all payers. The purpose of the TCC is to identify the transmitter of the file. You may transmit files for as many companies as you need under the one TCC.

    Only submit a paper Form 4419 when you have an existing Transmitter Control Code (TCC) to:
  • Revise current TCC information
  • Request an additional TCC for a form type that you currently have an active TCC or for another form type listed on Form 4419, Block 8

  • For more information, refer to FIRE or Publication 1220, Specifications for Electronic Filing of Forms 1097, 1098, 1099, 3921, 3922, 5498, and W-2G (PDF).

  • How to create a FIRE account
  • If you are a new user, you need to create a FIRE account on the FIRE system. You need enter your company name, company address, company phone number, contact name and email address.

    You can create the account before you get your transmitter control code.
