IRS MeF federal and state program
We accept electronically filed calendar year, fiscal year, short year, and amended returns through the IRS' modernized e-file platform (MeF) for the following Business programs and returns: Corporation, Oregon Composite, Partnership, Transit Self-Employment, and Fiduciary. View our list of approved software vendors.
You can e-file the current tax year and two prior tax years with both Oregon and the IRS. Other years must be submitted on paper or 2-D barcode.
We accept returns e-filed using approved e-file software from any IRS-approved electronic return originator (ERO) or corporations who e-file directly with the IRS.
If your corporation is required to e-file your federal return, then your corporation is also required to e-file your Oregon return. In addition, if e-filing was required for the original return, then any amended returns for that year must also be e-filed. However, if that year is not open for e-file, you should paper file or file with a 2-D barcode.
Oregon corporate returns can be submitted electronically via the IRS as either a "linked submission" or an "unlinked submission." Both methods require that you include the electronic federal return, unless you're filing a Form OR-20-INS.
Federal return data
We send an acknowledgement of all returns received. Allow at least one business day to receive our acknowledgment before contacting us.
Returns are signed via a checkbox on the return. This serves the same purpose as physically signing your return.
You can make an electronic payment with your e-filed return, through Revenue Online,
an electronic funds transfer, or by check. You can also mail check payments to us with an accompanying Form OR-20-V
. Please don't mail a paper copy of your return if you e-filed but are paying by check.
