94X 1099 W-2 ACA W-4
In the filing flow of 94x forms, in the Signature page, the tax professional has multiple options to request the taxpayer to authorize Form 8453-EMP:
- By E-sign, where they can request the taxpayer to e-sign the Form 8453-EMP. An email with a link to e-sign the form is sent to the taxpayer for their signature.
- By Other Means, where the tax professional has an option to download and print a pre-filled Form 8453-EMP and have them signed by the taxpayer. Alternatively, they can email a pre-filled Form 8453-EMP to the taxpayer. Once it's signed, a scanned copy of the same can be uploaded to complete the authorization process.
The IRS requires you to file Form 8453-EMP along with the electronically filed 94x returns.
