SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Employment Tax Declaration for an IRS e-file Return. OMB Number: 1545–0967. Form Numbers: 8453–EMP. Abstract: This process would allow CI, Exam, Audit, and other IRS employees’ immediate access to the signature document (tax return), instead of submitting a manual request for the document and waiting for someone to manually search, find, and copy/fax/ mail the document to them. Data will be used to verify and affirm the 94X series of forms (excluding the amended series of returns) taxpayer’s signature. The expected respondents will be taxpayers, who file a 94X series of form. Title: U.S. Estate of Trust Income Tax Declaration and Signature for Electronic and Magnetic Media Filing. OMB Number: 1545–0967. Form Numbers: 8453–F. Abstract: This form is used to secure taxpayer signatures and declarations in conjunction with electronic or magnetic media filing of trust and fiduciary income tax returns, Form 8453–F, together with the electronic or magnetic media transmission, will comprise the taxpayer’s income tax return (Form 1041). Title: U.S. Estate or Trust Declaration and Signature for an IRS e-File Return. OMB Number: 1545–0967. Form Numbers: 8453–FE. VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:49 Sep 23, 2013 Jkt 229001 Abstract: This is a new form for the SB/SE division of the IRS. It is very similar to existing IRS Form 8453–F, U.S. Estate or Trust Income Tax Declaration and Signature for Electronic Filing. This form will only be used as a signature letter to Form 1041. This new form was requested by the Mod-E file division of the IRS, and approved by the SB/SE. It is used as an electronic signature letter for Form 1041, whenever Form 1041 is filed electronically. Form 8453–FE is associated with E-file, while Form 8453–F is associated with Legacy. For 2013, both forms will be used. However, in the future, Form 8453–F will be retired when Legacy is no longer used by the IRS. The authorizing statue is 26 USC Section 7502, Electronic Filing. Title: IRS e-file Signature Authorization for Form 1041. OMB Number: 1545–0967. Form Number: 8879–F. Abstract: This form has been created to provide e-file signature authorization for Form 1041 to foster IRS policy promoting e-filing of returns. The form is necessary to support modernized efile initiatives. This form will reduce paper processing and handling of forms 1041, schedule K–1 (Form 1041), and related forms and schedules.

Abstract: This process would allow CI, Exam, Audit, and other IRS employees’ immediate access to the signature document (tax return), instead of submitting a manual request for the document and waiting for someone to manually search, find, and copy/fax/ mail the document to them. Data will be used to verify and affirm the 94X series of Forms (excluding the amended series of returns) taxpayer’s signature. Form 8879–EMP will enable an ERO to file and sign electronically.
