PIN Application for Form 941/940 Information
PIN Application for Form 941/940 is used to apply for a PIN from the IRS to participate in the e-file program for Form 941 and Form 940.

A Business Taxpayer can prepare and e-file a PIN Application at our website directly. The IRS will mail a PIN to the contact person of the Business Taxpayer in a few weeks. The Business Taxpayer can then start to e-file Form 941.
A Reporting Agent can prepare a PIN Application at our website, but he/she needs to print the PIN Application and mail it with a completed Form 9041 and copies of Form 8655 to the IRS. The IRS will mail a test PIN to the contact person in a few weeks. The Reporting Agent is required to complete a test transmission before a production PIN is issued.
