What steps are involved in the federal S-Corporation election filing?


S-Corporation Election Filing Service


First, complete our simple one-page online application. Then provide payment for our sservice on the secure checkout page. We immediately prepare your IRS Form 2553 documents and display them on the next page to be signed by your business's highest ranking officers and all its owners. All signatures can be provide online immediately. If all required signators are not present, they can visit our Existing Customers page at any time to provide their signatures. Upon receipt of the final 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 or non-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 2553 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 800-829-4933.
