How do 1040 Return Instructions indicate eSignature of Form 8879?


In File > Print Returns, when assembling an eSignature envelope for Form 8879 by selecting Client copy, Electronic delivery, and Web/eSignature, the 1040 Return Instructions in the Government and Preparer collations will indicate eSignature with the following paragraph.

"A link to initiate an electronic signature has been sent to you in a separate email. Please refer to that email for electronic signature instructions. If you have any questions, please contact this office."

Note: The previous text does not appear prior to assembly when previewing a return from the UltraTax CS toolbar buttons Print Preview or Filing Instructions.
