Filing during the COVID-19 outbreak

BEA's surveys are used to produce accurate and objective statistics on the U.S. economy. Survey responses covering 2021 are particularly needed to ensure accurate measurement of the U.S. economy during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Because the present situation has temporarily reduced our capacity to send and receive paper mail, we may contact survey respondents via email. We understand that the virus already may have had profound effects on the ability of survey respondents to comply with the surveys. To assist you, we suggest:

  • Use our secure eFile system at www.bea.gov/efile or fax to submit completed forms. At present we have limited ability to receive physical copies of completed survey forms, extension requests, or other documents that are mailed or couriered to us.
  • Extensions are available if needed.
  • Provide estimates if necessary. We realize that the data requested in our surveys might be unavailable at this time or access to required records may be limited.

BEA survey staff continue to be available to assist survey respondents.
