Important Update: IRS Launches New Business Tax Account Portal

We are pleased to announce that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has introduced a new Business Tax Account portal, providing a comprehensive online system for managing your business’s federal tax obligations. This portal is designed to offer a streamlined experience for various business entities, including sole proprietorships, partnerships, and S-Corporations.


Who Can Use the Business Tax Account Portal?

  • Sole Proprietorships: If you file with an Employer Identification Number (EIN), you can access the portal.

  • Partnerships and S-Corporations: Individual partners or shareholders who have a Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN) and a Schedule K-1 filed between 2019-2022 can use the portal for the years they received a Schedule K-1.

The IRS is working on expanding access to more business types and roles in the near future.


Features of the Business Tax Account Portal:

For Sole Proprietors with EIN:

  • View business balance due

  • Access business tax records

  • Receive select digital notices

  • Request a tax compliance check

  • Update business name and address on file

  • Delegate account access to employees

  • Register for clean energy credits (if eligible)


For Partners and Shareholders:

  • View business balance due

  • Access business tax transcripts

  • Update business name on file


How to Access the Portal:

  • If you already have an online account with the IRS, use the same sign-in credentials.

  • If you do not have an account, be prepared to verify your identity with a photo ID.

Accessibility:

The Business Tax Account portal is accessible to users with screen readers, magnifiers, or voice command software. For assistance, refer to the business tax account accessibility guide.


Help Topics:

  • Business Tax Account vs. Online Account: Use the Business Tax Account for business tax returns filed with an EIN. Use the Online Account for personal tax returns filed with an SSN or ITIN.

  • Creating a New Account: For registration assistance, see how to register for certain online self-help tools.

  • Customer Service: IRS customer service can assist with tax and payment questions but cannot access your Business Tax Account. For assistance, find phone and local assistance.

We recommend taking advantage of this new portal to enhance your tax management process.
