The use of digital signatures on certain forms that cannot be filed electronically will now be temporarily allowed. Expanding the use of digital signatures will help to protect the health of taxpayers and tax professionals during the coronavirus pandemic by reducing in-person contact between taxpayers and tax professionals.

Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, already uses an electronic signature when it is filed electronically, either by using a taxpayer self-selected PIN, if self-prepared or a tax-preparer selected PIN, if using a tax professional. While more than 90 percent of Form 1040s are filed electronically, if you haven't filed your 2019 tax return this year, it is important to consider e-filing forms whenever possible, due to COVID-19.

The following forms can be submitted with digital signatures if mailed by or on December 31, 2020:

Form 3115, Application for Change in Accounting Method;

Form 8832, Entity Classification Election;

Form 8802, Application for U.S. Residency Certification;

Form 1066, U.S. Income Tax Return for Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit;

Form 1120-RIC, U.S. Income Tax Return For Regulated Investment Companies;

Form 1120-C, U.S. Income Tax Return for Cooperative Associations;

Form 1120-REIT, U.S. Income Tax Return for Real Estate Investment Trusts;

Form 1120-L, U.S. Life Insurance Company Income Tax Return;

Form 1120-PC, U.S. Property and Casualty Insurance Company Income Tax Return; and

Form 8453 series, Form 8878 series, and Form 8879 series regarding IRS e-file Signature Authorization Forms.

This temporary option for e-signatures is subject to change at any time. Please contact the office with questions about this or any tax-related information.
