HOME PROJECTS MEETINGS EXTERNAL LINKS RESOURCES ABOUT US

Welcome to E-Standards! We are the source for electronic data interchange format standards for state tax and revenue administration. We were formed in 1991 as a task group of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Committee X12. Now sponsored exclusively by FTA, we proudly retain our X12 legacy of open membership and consensus development.

We are responsible for developing and maintaining the XML schemas that define state efile and data exchange for all tax types. We are recognized by the IRS as the official source of state XML standards for Fed/State Modernized eFile programs and the Security Summit. We support the FTA Uniformity committees for excise tax types. We support a variety of programs in the area of Payroll and Employment taxes, from FSET for Withholding and Unemployment taxes to the new Levy program for wage garnishment.

We have also worked with the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) to develop two ACH payment addenda record types, the Tax Payment (TXP) and the Third Party Payment (TTP), and we maintain the FTA code list for electronic payment tax types.
