Use our FREE IDES Packager to validate IRS Form 8966 XML against current IRS schema. Once the file has been successfully validated, our FREE IDES Packager will create the metadata file, sign, encrypt, rename and package your XML so that you can upload the resulting zip file to IDES for FATCA reporting. Wait for results from IDES and use the IDES Packager to decrypt messages from IDES.
FATCA and IDES are still relatively new. If you have questions, call us and we can help. We can efile Form 8966 on your behalf and encrypt using our digital certificate and our account with IDES.
