    The link in the Transmittal Status column will be shown as either Transmittal Accepted by the IRS, Transmittal Accepted with Errors by the IRS, or Transmittal Rejected by the IRS, Review and Re-Save.

  4. Click Create Correction. This will allow you to edit any field on the 1094-C.

  5. To select the 1094-C as a 1094-C Authoritative Transmittal, select the Line 19 checkbox. Clicking this will replace the Save button with Next Step. Click Next Step to access Part II, Part III, and possibly Part IV (depending on the options you select) of the 1094-C form.

    eFileMyForms doesn‘t charge an additional fee for this service.

  7. Be sure to confirm that your 1094-C Authoritative Transmittal was accepted by the IRS. This generally happens within 7 days of filing. You can check the status of your transmittal on the Order History page.

You only need to file one 1094-C Authoritative transmittal per filer for each tax year.
