We are a payroll provider company and we are interested in being approved as a bulk filer. Where can we review the information and register to be set up as a bulk filer?

Please be advised that the entire procedure may take several weeks to a few months. You will need to use your current filing method until you are fully certified to be a bulk filer. Additionally, you must have an account set up with the Ohio Business Gateway, an ETIN (Electronic Transmitter Identification Number) assigned by the IRS, and, if you decide to pay through ACH Credit, register with the Ohio Treasurer of State to make electronic payments.

If you have any further questions or concerns, you may email the bulk file team at the email address bulkfileEWT@tax.state.oh.us
