IFILE is a free online software application provided by the Government that you can use to create and submit Form 5500 or 5500-SF filings. IFILE is available to all registered users with Internet access.
IFILE allows you to save and print filings as you work on them. You do not need to complete a filing in one session; you can come back to a saved filing another day to continue working on it. Returns/reports created using IFILE can include a Form 5500 or 5500-SF, schedules, and attachments. IFILE uses an interactive form-fill application that is user friendly and easy to navigate.
Once a filing is complete, users can electronically sign and submit it for processing. When using IFILE, system-generated emails will be sent to the filing author/signatory regarding the status of signature-ready and submitted filings.
