New Electronic Fingerprinting Process for E-File Applicants
IRS will not process paper fingerprint cards postmarked after August 15. Beginning September 25, IRS will implement a new electronic fingerprinting process for e-file applicants. Fingerprint cards postmarked after August 15 will be returned and applicants will need to wait until September 25 to schedule an electronic fingerprinting appointment through the e-file application.
Individuals will be required to use the IRS authorized vendor for fingerprinting. Each new Principal and Responsible Official listed on a new e-file application or added to an existing application must schedule an appointment with the IRS authorized vendor.
Instructions for scheduling an appointment will be provided upon submitting an e-file application. Read the announcement here
