Or is Esignature useful for Efile set up only.
What do you need electronically signed if you are paper filing the returns?
We have some clients that are out of state that would like to file with us. I wanted to see if we can use the esignature functionality to have them digitally sign where they are at, before we mail out the paper returns.
I have to ask, why are you doing paper returns?
IRS has a huge mail backlog from 2019 tax returns, and the postal "service" sucks.
IRS will not accept digital, scanned, or photographed signature on a paper filed 1040.
I have to ask, why do you think they care? (It could be a zero-balance return. And if there is tax owed, IRS gladly accepts online payments withut a signature.)
I have no idea.
