What steps are involved in the Entity Classification Election filing?


Entity Classification Election Filing Service


First, complete our simple one-page online application. Then provide payment for our service on the secure checkout page. We immediately prepare your IRS Form 8832 documents and provide them for your signature. Upon receipt of the required signature, we fax your signed forms to the IRS, usually within one business day. We then send you an e-mail confirming that we have done so and that concludes our service on the order.

Then within 60 days, the IRS will send you a postal mail informing you of the acceptance of your election and when it will take effect.

Or, if the mail from the IRS indicates non-acceptance of your election, you can amend your IRS form 8832 as necessary and resubmit it to the IRS. For help, feel free to contact us.

If it has been more than 60 days since your election was submitted and you still have not received an IRS notice of acceptance or non-acceptance, you can follow up with the IRS by calling 800-829-0115.
