Big News – E-Signatures Expanded to IRS Forms 8878, 8879

The IRS is now accepting electronic signatures for forms 8878 and 8879. This is great news for eFileCabinet customers who use these tax forms! With eFileCabinet’s  eSignature service,  this means taking care of these documents come tax time will be much easier.

The IRS requires that your electronic signature software records the following data:

  • Digital image of the signed form
  • Date and time of the signature
  • Method used to sign the form
  • Taxpayer’s computer IP address
  • Taxpayer’s software login username
  • Taxpayer’s knowledge based authentication passed results

eSignature can record and store all of that data for you, an easy and worry-free way to be compliant with IRS requirements and eliminate the paper mess that forms 8878 and 8879 create. This  webinar  explains in more detail how all of this works!
