or Practitioner Access. The Court will serve simultaneous briefs when all have been received.
Simultaneous briefs may be viewed through Petitioner and Practitioner Access after service.
In addition to serving the designated service person, the Court will send a courtesy copy of the
Notification of Service to the eFiler and all registered Petitioner Access and Practitioner Access
users in the case who have consented to receive eService. If eService on those parties or other
persons receiving courtesy electronic service fails, the eFiler is not required to serve them in
Note: The Court’s system sends a Notification of Service immediately after a document is
eFiled. The document must be indexed before it may be viewed through eAccess. This may take
several minutes or longer, depending on the size of the document and volume of transactions the
system is processing.
Users should log on to Practitioner Access daily in case a notification was intercepted by a junk
mail filter. To reduce the possibility of notifications being returned as undeliverable to the
Court’s email system, eFilers should add the Court’s domain “ustaxcourt.gov” to their email
program’s list of safe senders. The Tax Court does not respond to sender verification messages
automatically generated by junk email or spam filters. If an email notification is returned
(bounces back) as undeliverable to the Court’s email system or the Court receives a sender
verification message from a junk email or spam filter, the practitioner’s election to receive
eService is automatically revoked. As consent to eService is a prerequisite for eFiling, the
practitioner will also lose the ability to transmit documents electronically. To restore eService
and eFiling privileges, the eFiler must log on to Practitioner Access, enter a valid email address,
and update his or her eService preference.
Determining the status of a document transmitted on or before January 17,
For pending documents transmitted to the Court on or before January 17, 2014, the Court sends
email notifications to non-IRS practitioners indicating whether a transmission was accepted for
filing. The Court sends email notification of documents from IRS practitioners that are accepted
for eFiling only to the IRS National Office. The Court sends email notification of rejected
documents to non-IRS practitioners and to both the IRS practitioner and the IRS National Office.
The Court processes documents Monday through Friday. Email notification of transmissions that
are accepted for filing are sent on the day the Court accepts the document for filing. The Court
sends email notification of rejected transmissions as they are processed. The notification will
state a reason for the rejection. In most cases, the eFiler may transmit a corrected document.
All transactions commenced on or before January 17, 2014, that the Court has not processed will
appear on the eFiler’s list of pending transactions. The list may be accessed by clicking the “My
Transactions” link near the top of the Practitioner Access screen.
Note: A document electronically transmitted on a day the Court is open will be filed as of the
date it was electronically transmitted, and a document electronically transmitted on a day the
Court is closed (e.g., a weekend) which is processed and accepted for filing will be filed as of the
next day the Court is open (i.e., the first day the Court reopens after the document was

Documents filed after January 17, 2014, are entered on the record automatically as they are

save or print the transaction receipt by clicking the hyperlinked transaction number.
All documents transmitted after January 17, 2014, are immediately filed and entered on the
record. If an eFiler discovers an error in an eFiled document, he or she may eFile a motion to
supplement or a motion to amend the eFiled document in accordance with the Tax Court Rules
of Practice and Procedure.
The Court’s Docket Section will review all eFiled documents. The Docket clerk may correct
certain errors in the docket entry or the document filed. The errors will be indicated in a Notice
of Docket Change. The Court will preserve the original information provided by the eFiler and
note the correction(s) in a Notice of Docket Change which will appear on the docket record.
The Court may also order that a document be deemed stricken from the record. The docket entry
for a stricken document will remain on the docket record but will be modified by adding
“STRICKEN” to the end of the docket entry. The Court may make certain stricken documents
unviewable by the parties. For example, a document eFiled in the wrong case will be deemed
stricken and the contents will not be viewable.

Navigating the eFiling Process
- 41 -
The eFiling process consists of multiple steps with a final confirmation. Up until the point of
submitting the document, any or all information may be changed. If you attempt to advance to
the next step before entering the required information, the system will alert you by displaying in
red text the corrections to be made.
As you advance through the process, you will see the system build the docket entry on the
“Document Title” line, based on the information you provide and the selections you make (see
the yellow highlighted area above).
When you begin the eFiling process, you will see “eFiling Steps” between the caption and the
blue-shaded eFiling window (see red box above). The steps indicate where you are in the
process and allow you to jump to another step by clicking a hyperlink. Your current step is
shown in bold, black, italicized text. In the example above, the eFiler is at the “Attach
Document” step. You may also navigate through the process by clicking the “Previous” and
“Next” buttons at the bottom of the screen (see the green box above).

Select the document name. Select the title of the document from the “Filing
Document” drop-down menu or type the corresponding code (not available while
the Wizard is on) and click “Next”. See page
71 for a list of documents, codes,
and categories. You will see a message if the document you select is not eligible

if you are representing petitioner or respondent. For example, the “ANSWER”
category does not appear if you are petitioners’ counsel, and respondent’s counsel
do not see “PETITION”. The list will be further limited if you do not already
have eAccess to the case.
Certain documents, such as a response to an order or a stipulation of facts, require
you to make an additional selection before proceeding to the next step. If the
document you are filing is an amended, amended certificate of service,
amendment to, opposition to, redacted, reply to, response to, supplement to,
supplemental, or redacted document or a request for admissions or stipulation of
facts, please see the instructions on page

for modifying or responding to petitions, answers, replies to answers, pretrial
memoranda, and briefs which may be found under the category of “Petition”,
“Answer”, etc. Consult the list of documents beginning on page
71 to determine
which code to use.
Some categories have an arrow to the right which indicates that a secondary list of
document names will be displayed when you select it (see red box below). The
document titles are arranged alphabetically. For example, “Motion for
Continuance” appears above “Motion To Dismiss”. Categories that contain a
large number of documents, such as motions and notices, will first display
commonly filed documents. To view the complete list of motions in the example
below, click “Other Motions...” (see green box below).

cannot accommodate three lists side by side, as in the example below, the third list
