Update - Form 4419, Revise Existing Transmitter Control Code (TCC) for Filing Information Returns Electronically (FIRE), Phased Out Effective August 1, 2022


Beginning September 2022, IRS will transition filers who received their FIRE Transmitter Control Codes(TCC) prior to September 26, 2021, to the new Information Returns Application for Transmitter Control Code (IR-TCC). As part of this transition, Form 4419, Revise Existing TCC for FIRE, will be phased out effective August 1, 2022. Your TCC will remain valid for use until August 1, 2023, after that date, any FIRE TCC that does not have a completed IR-TCC Application will be dropped and will not be available for e-file.

What you need to do:

  • Beginning in September 2022, access the IR-TCC Application to submit your application and update your information.

    Note: You will have to validate your identity using the latest IRS authentication process.

  • If you do not plan to immediately complete the IR TCC application, you must take the following actions:

    • By August 1, 2022, ensure the information on your application (submitted via Form 4419) contains the current contact's name, current email address and current telephone number. Also, please verify the company's current legal name is correct (spelling, abbreviations, special characters and spacing) to match IRS records.

      IMPORTANT - If your legal business name isn't correct, you won't be able to log into the FIRE System to file electronically. These changes must be received by August 1, 2022, to ensure the information can be updated timely. Once the transition is complete, the Form 4419, Revise Existing TCC for FIRE, will no longer be available. You'll need to complete the online IR Application for TCC process to make updates to your application.

    • By August 1, 2023, you must complete the new IR-TCC Application process to continue to file electronically and retain use of your current TCC(s). If you complete the IR-TCC Application after this date you will be issued new TCC(s).
