Ending 94x client PIN enrollment and filing

Alerts and notices

We are phasing out the individual client PIN filing method for 94x forms in Accounting CS. This decision was based on a request from the IRS and is explained in their May 2019 QuickAlert Message (See, specifically, the message from May 17, 2019).

As of the 2019.2.0 release, you can no longer transmit 94x client PIN enrollment files in the Actions > Enroll 94X Client PIN screen.  The Transmit PINs button is now grayed out and unavailable. 

For now, you can still file as an electronic return originator (ERO) using individual client PINs for clients who already have a PIN assigned to them by the IRS.  Be aware that the IRS may contact you about using this filing method.

In a future release, we will remove this filing method entirely. To avoid any delays in electronically filing your clients' 94x returns, we recommend that you register as a reporting agent as soon as possible. 

For information about registering as a reporting agent and filing using a single PIN, refer to the E-filing 94x forms - overview
