General Information about Partnership Return Electronic Filing

The Missouri Department of Revenue offers electronic filing of the Missouri Partnership Return of Income. Electronic filing is a fast growing alternative to mailing paper returns. Partnerships may file Form MO-1065 Missouri Partnership Return of Income electronically in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service through Modernized Electronic Filing (MeF). This system was developed through a cooperative effort between the IRS, Missouri, and the software community. The system uses the latest electronic technology and industry standards. Benefits of electronic filing include proof of filing, ease of return preparation, and greater accuracy.


E-file works in conjunction with the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) Electronic Filing System. Partnerships can file the MO-1065 return and attachments by using a tax preparer or software approved by the IRS as an Electronic Return Originator (ERO). The state return can be transmitted to the IRS along with the federal return. When the federal return is accepted, an acknowledgment (electronic confirmation) is sent from the IRS to the transmitter. The IRS then packages the state return information for retrieval by the Department. When the state return is accepted, an acknowledgment is sent from the Department to the IRS for retrieval by the transmitter.
