Welcome to Our Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) System

Notice: The Minnesota Department of Revenue’s Electronic Data Exchange system will no longer be available beginning January 1, 2019. If you need to upload files less than 30 megabytes (MB), use our e-Services system. If you need to upload files more than 30 MB, contact us.
The EDE system allows you to submit W-2 information using the EFW2 (SSA) format and 1099 information using the IRS Publication 1220 format.
  • Use the "Production" link to submit your file to the department.
  • Use the "Certification" link to demo the process or test your file.

To log in, enter your Minnesota tax ID number followed by your User ID (e.g. 1234567smith).  If you do not have a user ID for e-File Minnesota, use "admin" (e.g. 1234567admin).

Your EDE password is separate from e-Services.

For information on how to use the EDE system, see our step-by-step instructions.

Note: If your file size is less than 30 MB, you can submit the file using e-Services.
