New (tax) year, new help!

Fixed Assets and UltraTax CS 2023 help is now on Help and Support. We're still moving articles, but you can find most content for the 2023 tax year there. Continue using the Help & How-To Center for tax years 2022 and older.

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.
