Form 8453 serves as a transmittal form for electronic filings of individual income tax returns. It is used to provide authorization for the electronic return of an individual income tax return to the IRS. The form is used to indicate that the taxpayer has authorized the electronic filing of their tax return and that they consent to the terms outlined in the tax return.
In addition, Form 8453 is used to attach certain types of supporting documents filed with the tax return. Examples of these documents include 1098-C, 2848 forms, and other statements and forms that support the taxpayer’s claims for deductions, credits, and exemptions.
Form 8453 is a relatively short form that contains several sections that need to be completed. The following is a breakdown of the sections and what information needs to be provided:
The first section requires the taxpayer to provide their full name, social security number, and other identifying information, such as their address and phone number. If the taxpayer is filing jointly, the same information for the spouse should also be included.
Please fill in the taxpayer’s Social Security Number (SSN) accurately on Form 8453. In case of a joint tax return, list both SSNs according to their corresponding first names.
The next section is where you’ll identify the attachments. If you’re filing with any of the below forms, just tick the applicable box that corresponds to the form.
