Biz eFile Authorization

This eFile authorization form is for partnership or corporate (business) tax returns. To provide us with eFile authorization for your individual or personal tax returns, please use the button below-

We have created a completely paperless system for authorizing the electronic filing of your Federal and State tax returns for your partnership or corporation. By completing the following Business eFile Authorization form, you are consenting to the electronic signing of Form 8879-PE (partnership), Form 8879-C (C Corp) or Form 8879-S (S Corp) and similar state forms. If you want to review, sign and return the paper forms, please refer to your tax return PDF in your client portal for instructions.

Otherwise, please read the following disclosure, and complete the following items. Thank you!

Warning- If you magically find deductible business expenses after your business tax returns are eFiled and you want to amend, we will smile, nod and say “Sounds great!” But we will also have to charge an additional fee (which usually ranges from $400 to $650). Therefore, please double check your records against your tax returns before authorizing the filing. Better yet! Call us at 719-387-9800 to schedule a tax return review.

Identity Confirmation - Form 8879

Your tax return PDF is assembled in this order-

1. Transmittal Letter (Cover Letter)
2. Invoice
3. Filing Instructions
4. Form 8879 (C, S or PE)
5. Summaries and Comparisons
6. Tax Returns
If you are using Adobe, bookmarks should be available as well. You will need some information from Form 8879 (C, S or PE) to answer the following questions. This PDF was securely emailed to you with the password as the EIN without dashes. And this PDF was also uploaded to your Client Portal.

1. Your gross receipts or income is located on Line 1 of Form 8879 (C, S or PE).

2. The 5-digit business PIN is also located on Form 8879 (C, S or PE), about half way down.

If you need help locating the gross receipts or income, or PIN, please let us know. Again, this is on the first page of your tax return PDF.

Survey (Please Help)

There are two types of relationships we can have with our clients. And we want to make sure we are serving your needs correctly. One is the transactional relationship where we complete a service for you, and the relationship is paused until the next transaction. The ball is in your court, but we are always available to you whenever, for whatever.

The other relationship is more ongoing or bundled, where we complete a service for you but you also want periodic interactions with us. We reach out to you to help plan, review or project various things such as taxes, retirement, education savings and other what-if scenarios. Wow- that is a long sentence, but you get the idea. Conversely, the ball is in our court and we ping you 2-3 times per year, and schedule consultations as necessary.
