Appointment of a CPA Need for a PECOS Form The IRS, in conjunction with the states and other tax authorities, has developed a national standard form that is required to be completed by organizations electing to use electronic filing services. This form contains information about the organization’s financial statements and records as well as its procedures for identifying errors. In addition to this financial statement information, the PECOS form asks questions about how an organization will maintain accurate accounting records and make sure they are available for review. Most state tax agencies have adopted their own versions of this document that contain similar information but may also require additional disclosures or paperwork to be filed in connection with an audit or examination process. While there is no federal requirement that public companies must file these forms, it can still prove useful if you want your company included on any government lists used when determining eligibility for certain federal financing programs such as loans from banks or grants from nonprofit groups like SBA (Small Business Administration).
