Signature Methods

Eric Updated by Eric

Each electronic return must have an electronic signature when submitted. There are three signature methods:

  • Reporting Agent PIN
  • Practitioner PIN
  • Form 8453-EMP PDF

Forms for each method can be found in Payroll System under General Forms/Utilities:

Form 8655 and the 8655 Reporting Agent List are used to apply for a Reporting Agent PIN. This is the simplest method to electronically sign forms. For the other methods, use Form 8879-EMP or Form 8453-EMP.

For more information on the use of these forms, see the Help file.
