Posted: Thursday, October 7, 2021
: Effective October 12, 2021, anyone required to use eFS to electronically eFile and eServe documents, or voluntarily chooses to use eFS, must use the HTML5 eFS
portal. This change will only impact some users who use the Internet Explorer browser to access eFS.
Why is this happening?
