EF Generally

When can I expect the banners to be removed from tax forms?


You may be seeing the text "TAXPAYER COPY ONLY - DO NOT MAIL THIS FORM" across the top of forms and/or a watermark printed diagonally across some forms that says "DO NOT FILE THIS PAPER FORM WITH THE __ DOR. THIS FORM IS ONLY ELIGIBLE FOR EF." This text only prevents paper-filing of the form on which it appears. Unless prevented by an EF message page, the forms can be e-filed. With the following possible exceptions, the banners will be removed from affected business forms on or before March 15, 2022.


  • Some pages of Form 1120-S K2/K3
