The Internal Revenue Service will install a software upgrade for e-Services from July 21 through Aug. 4. During installation of the upgrade, e-Services will not be available. This is a scheduled outage and is needed to upgrade the current e-Services software, according to the IRS. E-Services are Web-based products that allow tax pros and taxpayers to do business with the IRS electronically. They include preparer tax identification number application, online e-file application, and taxpayer identification number matching. In addition, tax professionals who e-file five or more accepted business or individual tax returns in a season are also eligible to use three additional e-Services products -- disclosure authorization, electronic account resolution and a transcript delivery system.
