IRS MeF Electronic Filing Certificate Program Application to Application System - Certificate Center

The Internal Revenue Service utilizes ACES Business Representative Certificates to authenticate their External Trading Partners systems for data exchange through MeF (Modernized e-File). The External Trading Partners using MeF can be either transmitters from private industry or State Agencies. The certificates are associated with a partnerís system which is approved to submit information to IRS or to retrieve information from the IRS.

IdenTrust issued ACES certificates are one of the methods of authentication approved by the IRS for use with the Modernized e-File Application to Application System.

IdenTrust was the first certified ACES issuer by the GSA. We have been issuing ACES certificates for over 7 years. Customers have provided written and verbal feedback on their high level of satisfaction based on our superb customer service.

Please note: ONLY THE SUBSCRIBER OF THE CERTIFICATE SHOULD HAVE EXCLUSIVE USE - THE DIGITAL CERTIFICATE IS YOUR FORM OF IDENTIFICATION, SIMILAR TO YOUR PASSPORT OR DRIVERS LICENSE. Under the GSA Certificate Policy, it is our responsibility as an Authorized Certificate Authority to revoke the certificate in a case of loss or disclosure of the private key (Passphrase) to anyone other than the subscriber.
