Financial Data Exchange (FDX) Tax Ecosystem Participation

The Financial Data Exchange (FDX) organization has put in place a new, single standard data structure for exporting and importing almost all U.S. tax accounting data. See this press release. This new standard replaces the older standards of OFX and TXF with new data structures. It also removes the need for proprietary CSV files. The standard uses JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) data serialization technology.

There are three ways FDX Tax JSON can be delivered: (1) Application Program Interface, (2) File Export, and (3) QR Code. Whichever way you choose, the first step is to transform your tax form data into the FDX Tax JSON data structure.

We can help you jump start the development of FDX JSON with the Software Development Kit (SDK) shown below. Click the button shown below for more information.

FDX Tax Data Object Creation SDK

Sample code to create and populate FDX tax form objects and serialize to JSON

Java code including:

  • Tax form data models for 51 tax forms
  • Sample code to populate all 51 forms with data
  • JSON serialization code
  • Updates for any changes to tax year 2020 specifications

This SDK will jump start your development of downloadable FDX JSON files and save you over 160 hours of research and development.

Available from Bitbucket source code repository.
