The technical definition is, "Excise Tax Declaration for an IRS e-File Return". Form 8453-EX is a declaration by a taxpayer to authenticate an electronic Form 2290 and authorize an intermediate service provider to transmit your return using a third-party transmitter.
This form is filed if you use a paid preparer (CPA or service provider) to e-file your tax return. The taxpayer must sign this return to allow the paid preparer to file the tax return on the taxpayer's behalf.
With ExpressTruckTax, Form 8453 can be sent and signed electronically. The tax preparer can email Form 8453-EX to the taxpayer through ExpressTruckTax to get the declaration form signed.
