Update - Phase 2 of the Information Returns (IR) Application for Transmitter Control Code (TCC) Transition

The IRS is continuing its transition to the new Information Returns TCC (IR-TCC) Application for Filing Information Returns Electronically (FIRE) for customers who received their TCC(s) prior to September 26, 2021. Customers must take action to keep their existing TCCs active.

Beginning in September 2022, FIRE TCC holders who submitted their TCC Application prior to September 26, 2021, will need to submit and complete the IR-TCC Application. The IR-TCC application can be done at any time between September 2022 and August 1, 2023. Your TCC will remain active for use until August 1, 2023, after that date, any FIRE TCC that does not have a completed IR-TCC Application will be dropped and will not be available for e-file. Visit Filing Information Returns Electronically Update for more information.

What are the benefits?
The online application allows easier application updates, including requesting additional TCCs, and provides more control over who has access to your TCC(s).

What do you need to do?

  • Beginning in September 2022, and prior to August 1, 2023, you’ll be asked to take the following steps:
  • Validate your identity using the latest IRS authentication process if you’ve not already done so.
  • Log into the IR Application for TCC.
  • Complete the online application.
    Note: Your TCC(s) issued prior to September 26, 2021, will automatically be added to your completed application.

We encourage you to complete the transition as soon as possible.
