No, in order to file electronically, both tax practitioner and their clients must sign Form 8453-TE. Upon signing the form, the IRS recognizes that the taxpayer has authorized the tax practitioner to file their return electronically.

For your convenience, ExpressExtension has generated the 8453-TE (signature authorization form) with extension form 8868. Please follow the instructions below to get your client's signature on Form 8453-TE and upload it while e-filing form 8868.
