WELCOME TO STATEMeF.COM - THE HOME OF FTA E-STANDARDS

FTA E-Standards is the source for electronic data interchange format standards for tax and revenue administration. The E-Standards group was formed in 1991 to address EDI standards, but has worked with XML standards since 2000.

FTA E-Standards is recognized by the IRS as the official source of state XML standards for Fed/State Modernized eFile programs for all tax types. FTA E-Standards is also chartered to develop technical standards for compliance with the Streamlined Sales Tax Agreement. Other nationally implemented standards include the Fed/State Employment Taxes (FSET) program and the Motor Fuel Uniformity Committee Electronic Commerce filing program.

Please follow our links to learn more about FTA E-Standards, and to download E-Standards XML standards and other work products.

Contact support@taxadmin.org to subscribe to the E-Standards E-List for technical discussion, as well as notifications of meetings, webinars, and the latest schema releases.
