I am trying to apply for IRS efile. I am a sole practitioner, with no employees, doing a small number of returns. The IRS application has 5 designations;1. ERO; 2. Intermediate Service Provider; 3.Software Developer; 4. Transmitter; 5. Reporting Agent.  I am not sure which I am. Can you advise?

If you're preparing returns for your clients and transmitting them using the software you subscribe to, you're an ERO.

1. ERO is what you want.

Option 1 ERO   

The Electronic Return Originator (ERO) is the Authorized IRS e-file Provider who originates the electronic submission of a return to the IRS.
