Do I need formal approval from my clients to e-file for them?

Eric Updated by Eric

There is nothing in the IRS instructions that says formal approval is required for 1099's. However, some preparers find it useful to send a letter to their clients.

Our Tax Corresponder product contains hundreds of customizable letter templates.

For e-filing Form 941 and related forms, see Signature Methods and Form 8879 - IRS e-file Signature Authorization.
