Submitting files

Secure EFT is a web‐based file transfer system that allows you to directly upload your files to Taxation servers over an encrypted channel. All modern browsers are supported, and there is no setup required on the sender’s end.

To request a secure EFT link, please send an email to to Tax.ProdControl@tax.ri.gov 

Please be ready to upload your file upon submitting your request, as the secure EFT link is only valid for 3 days

If multiple RE employer records are included in a file and an RE employer record(s) has a bad RS record due to a blank or incorrect SSN, only this employer(s) will be rejected and a new file with this employer(s) would need to be resubmitted.
