2021 Information for Software Developers

New application and distribution process for the New York City Business Tax e-File Program

Beginning Tax Year 2019, New York City is incorporating the Federation of Tax Administrators National Letter of Intent process and migrating New York City e-File tax form specifications FTA State Exchange System (SES) website. The SES website is a secure way to provide files to those that reproduce our forms. New York City will continue to send broadcast emails informing software providers when the letter of intent, e-File schema, and business rule releases are available.

All participants in the NYC program must comply with the procedures, requirements, and specifications as detailed in IRS Publication 3112: IRS e-File Application and Participation and IRS Publication 4164: Modernized e-File Guide for Software Developers and Transmitters.
