Your view of the home page depends on your access level. If a service or function appears grayed-out, you do not have access to use it.

The body of the home page contains the following sections:

  • Business Name & FEIN – confirms you are filing on behalf of the correct business.
  • Favorite Transactions – lists up to eight transactions that you can set as favorites in your User Profile.
  • Start a Service or Transaction – shows a dropdown list of the services you can use. For help with starting a service or transaction please see (link to "Starting a new transaction").
  • Transactions In Progress – lists transactions that require more information. For more information, see (link to "Managing transactions").
  • Transactions Ready for Checkout (Ready to File and Pay) – lists transactions that have all information, but have not gone through the Checkout process. You must go through checkout to complete submit the filing and/or payment. For more information, see (link to "Managing transactions").
