How do I file a 941 electronically as a Taxpayer in Premier?

Obtaining a PIN

To file the 941 as a Taxpayer, you must meet certain criteria.  Taxpayers:

  • File for themselves.
  • File for only one EIN.
  • Register and obtain a 10-digit PIN.
  • Send a PIN application to obtain the PIN.

Taxpayers must register for a Personal Identification Number (PIN) that replaces their signature on the paper form.  They use the PIN application form to register for this 10-digit PIN.  The employer name under which they filed for an Employer Identification Number (EIN) must be used.  PINs are valid for a specific employee in a specific company, and can take up to 45 days to be processed by the IRS.

Note: A separate PIN is required for each person who will "sign" the 940, 941, or 944 form.  If at any time in the future a new person will be "signing" the 940, 941, or 944 form for a particular EIN, a new PIN will be required for the new signature.  To update a PIN, fax or mail a letter on company letterhead to the Cincinnati e-help Desk informing them of the change.  The fax number is 877-477-0569. An authorized person must sign this letter.  The letter should include the EIN of the business, business name and address, name and title of the person signing the letter, and the name, title, and phone number of the previous authorized signer.  The IRS will mail a letter to confirm the change and provide the new PIN.  The mailing address is:
