Uploading Withholding files

If you are a business with a withholding file 2MB or less in size, please follow these steps:

Step 1: Register for INtax
Step 2: Manually enter each of your W-2s into INtax. Be sure that you have a valid Indiana Taxpayer Identification number (TID). However, if you have a valid EFW2 text file, you may upload your W-2s. More information can be found in our W-2 and WH-3 Filing Requirements Booklet.

Taxpayers with Withholding Files Over 2MB in Size

Step 1: Register for INtax
Step 2: Batch upload your W-2s.

The bulk file upload is a system for uploading electronic files containing tax return data to the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR)'s system. Batch upload submitters must be pre-registered and certified to use the system. This is DOR's preferred method of electronic filing if a company has a withholding file size of more than 2MB.

To submit a file to the department's Bulk Upload Web site, you must do all of the following:

  1. Have a valid Indiana Taxpayer Identification number (TID) for each return
  2. Be registered in INtax if you are a service provider (the clients included in the file do not have to be registered)
  3. Have a text file in the prescribed SSA EFW2 format
  4. Use PGP encryption software to encrypt file before sending them
    • Install PGP Software
    • Request Public Key from the department (IDORB2BSupport@dor.in.gov)
  5. Use the following software to connect to the secure FTP site: https://myshare.in.gov/Pages/sftp.aspx - Request User Name and Password to secure FTP site from the department (IDORB2BSupport@dor.in.gov)
  6. Successfully complete an upload of two test files to the FTP site listed in step E.
