Question

Why am I getting IRS error code R0000-905-01 when electronically filing Form 7004?

Answer

Error code R0000-905-01, EFIN must be listed in the e-File database and in accepted status.

If you get this error code, you need to call the IRS and verify that you are approved to electronically file returns. You would have had to file Form 8633 and marked the applicable return checkbox. You can call the IRS at 866-255-0654 to complete the application by phone.

Note: There is a lag time between when the IRS changes its system and when your returns can be transmitted. If you call before 4:00 p.m. eastern time, you can send your returns after 6:00 a.m. eastern time the next day. If you call after 4:00 p.m., the IRS will take two days to process the application.
