Business e-file Program General Information
Business e-file allows business taxpayers to e-file returns for taxable years 2014-2016 for the following form types.
- Form 100, Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return
- Form 100S, S Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return
- Form 100W, Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return- Water's Edge
- Form 100X, Amended Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return

Beginning January 2017, business taxpayers will have the ability to submit stand-alone Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) extension payments for Corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLC), and Partnerships using tax preparation software. These payments will be accepted as “stand-alone”, and can be submitted separately from the e-filed return. Check with your software provider to be sure they support this feature.
