MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to transmit e-files from CS Connect. Find out more.

If you do not use a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to sign the return, Form 8453-FE is the signature document that completes the filing of an electronically filed estate or trust return. This form also serves as an authorization for an electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) for the balance due of the return.

Form 8453-FE must be attached to the electronic file as a PDF file. The form cannot be used to submit paper document attachments to the IRS, and the form is not mailed to the IRS. For information about attaching documents to the electronic file, see Electronic Filing Attachments dialog and Attaching Portable Document Format (PDF) files to electronic files.
