How do I e-file Form 7200 with Express E-file?
File Form 7200 to claim advance payment on credits. With Express E-File, you can complete the form in less than 15 minutes and have your previously filed (or will file in 2020) 94x forms to complete the 7200 in ease.
Here are the steps to e-file Form 7200 in Express E-File:
Sign up or log in to your Express E-file account. Choose Form 7200 from Forms dropdown menu.
Enter your Name, Employee Identification Number (EIN), Trade name, Address with Zipcode.
Check the applicable calendar quarter for which you are filing Form 7200.
If you are filing with the help of a tax preparer then enter the third-part payer’s name and EIN.
Note: Make sure to enter the correct EIN as it is in the IRS records. This will help you to avoid unnecessary rejection of your return.
On Part- 1:
Line A, Check the employment tax return that you file (or will file) for 2020.
Line B, Indicate if your business was started on or after January 2020. If its a new business then skip line C unless you’ve already filed Form 941, Form 941-PR, or Form 941-SS for at least one quarter of 2020.
Line C, Enter the total wages, tips, and compensation you reported on the recently filed Form 941. If you have filed other forms, you have to report different amounts, refer IRS instruction to know more.
Line D, Enter the total number of employees.
On Part - 2:
Line 1, 2, 3, Enter the total retention credit (use the Express E-file calculator and calculate the total wages and credits), enter the qualified sick leave wages, enter the qualified family leave wages paid for the quarter respectively. Sum up Lines 1, 2 and 3, and enter it on Line 4.
Line 5, Enter the amount by which you reduced your federal tax deposits for the quarter. If this line is left blank or incorrect amount entered, it will have an effect on your employment tax return.

Once you enter all the details, you can review and sign the form. If you made any error on Form 7200, you can correct when you file your Form(s) 941, 943, 944, or CT-1 for 2020.
