Not getting the Reset Password email ? - When you are requesting multiple reset emails it deactivates the link in the first email that is still on its way to you so when you receive the first email, the link would not work. Then requesting a third email deactivates the link in the second email that is still on its way which puts you in a loop.
You can delete all reset emails you received, request a new one from the log in page on the efile site and wait for it to be delivered. It may take 15 -45 minutes to be delivered so please Do Not Request Again. 

 

7) Once you receive the Reset Password Email you can proceed by opening the Email and clicking on Reset Password

 

Important!!! If you do not get the "Reset Password" email and the site is requesting you to log in again, you're in a loop. You will need to please wait until the Reset Password email is delivered. See step 6 & 7 above.
