The IRS has released Proposed Rule REG-102951 containing the proposed regulations amending the rules for determining when information returns will be required to be filed electronically.

These proposed regulations would require that all information returns, regardless of type, be taken into account to determine whether a filer meets the 250-return threshold and, therefore, must file the information returns electronically. Additionally, any filer required to file information returns electronically will be required to file their corrected information returns electronically as well regardless of the number of corrected information returns being filed.

The proposed regulations will impact all information returns required to be filed after December 31, 2018.
