Electronic Form 144 Now Available

Sept. 27, 2022

The EDGAR system is now ready to accept electronic Form 144 filings pursuant to recent SEC amendments that require certain Forms 144 be filed electronically with the SEC. Filers have approximately six (6) months from September 2022 to transition to electronic filing of Form 144. We will announce the exact compliance date for electronic filing of Form 144 after Federal Register publication of the relevant release, anticipated to occur in the coming weeks.

Apply for an EDGAR account

Reporting persons who do not have EDGAR accounts should apply for access to EDGAR as soon as possible, and well before the end of the compliance period.

Resources for filing electronically

We have created a Form 144—Resources for Filing Electronically webpage to support Form 144 filers and filing agents in applying for access to EDGAR and in preparing and submitting the electronic Form 144.

  • If you have questions about whether you are required to file a Form 144, please contact the Division of Corporation Finance’s Chief Counsel Office at (202) 551-3500, option 4.
  • If you have questions regarding applying for access to EDGAR and in preparing and submitting the new electronic Form 144, please contact EDGAR Filer Support.
