Hello, I am the treasurer for a small PTA that must file a 990-EZ (not the 990-N postcard). I just learned I can only file electronically now and must go through an outside Approved IRS e-filer as there are no options for me to file electronically on my own. I looked at a few of the providers listed on the IRS website but don't feel completely comfortable with them. Does anyone have experience doing this already and if so, can you please recommend an authorized provider you have had a good experience with and that is either free or very low cost? Thank you in advance for your help. Monica
