What if my taxpayer declines my request to e-sign Form 8879-EMP or is delaying things?

There are a couple of ways to handle this:

  1. It is likely that your taxpayer missed out on your request email. Click 'Resend E-sign Request' under the By E-sign >> Notify the Taxpayer tab to resend the request for the taxpayer's authorization.
  2. If the taxpayer declines your request to e-sign Form 8879-EMP. check out the options available to download and print a pre-filled Form 8879-EMP. Get your taxpayer sign the physical copy and upload a scanned copy of the same to complete the process.

As an ERO, it is your responsibility to get the taxpayer's signature on Form 8879-EMP. The IRS does not need the signed copy
