Request Your PIN

To electronically file copies of your 941/944 forms with the IRS, you must have an e-filing PIN. This is an electronic signature for your tax return. It takes the IRS 7 to 10 business days to send you this information, so give yourself plenty of time when requesting your PIN.
Note: You can also request a PIN during the 941/944 E-File Process, but keep in mind that it takes 7 to 10 business days to process your request and get your PIN.
  1. On the Transactions tab, click End of Period > Tax E-File.

The IRS will send you a PIN in 7 to 10 business days. Once you have this, you can electronically file your 941 or 944 forms.
