DC Tax Flash: IRS Approves Six More Forms for Digital Signatures
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) today expanded the number of forms that it will accept as digitally signed. Late last month, the agency announced it would accept for digital signatures ten forms that generally are printed and mailed. The move reflects efforts to reduce potential risks of virus transmission.
Today's action adds the following forms to the list of those being accepted digitally:
- Form 706, U.S. Estate (and Generation-Skipping Transfer) Tax Return
- Form 706-NA, U.S. Estate (and Generation-Skipping Transfer) Tax Return
- Form 709, U.S. Gift (and Generation-Skipping Transfer) Tax Return
- Form 1120-ND, Return for Nuclear Decommissioning Funds and Certain Related Persons
- Form 3520, Annual Return To Report Transactions With Foreign Trusts and Receipt of Certain Foreign Gifts
- Form 3520-A, Annual Information Return of Foreign Trust With a U.S. Owner
