Part II
Declaration and Signature Authorization of Fiduciary (Be sure to get a copy of the estate’s or
trust’s return)
Under penalties of perjury, I declare that I am a fiduciary of the above estate or trust and that I have examined a copy of the estate’s or trust’s
2019 electronic income tax return and accompanying schedules and statements, and to the best of my knowledge and belief, it is true,
correct, and complete. I further declare that the amounts in Part I above are the amounts shown on the copy of the estate’s or trust’s
electronic income tax return. I consent to allow my electronic return originator (ERO), transmitter, or intermediate service provider to send the
estate’s or trust’s return to the IRS and to receive from the IRS (a) an acknowledgment of receipt or reason for rejection of the transmission,
(b) the reason for any delay in processing the return or refund, and (c) the date of any refund. If applicable, I authorize the U.S. Treasury and
its designated Financial Agent to initiate an electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) entry to the financial institution account indicated in the
tax preparation software for payment of the estate’s or trust’s federal taxes owed on this return, and the financial institution to debit the entry
to this account. To revoke a payment, I must contact the U.S. Treasury Financial Agent at 1-888-353-4537 no later than 2 business days prior
to the payment (settlement) date. I also authorize the financial institutions involved in the processing of the electronic payment of taxes to
receive confidential information necessary to answer inquiries and resolve issues related to the payment. I have selected a personal
identification number (PIN) as my signature for the estate’s or trust’s electronic income tax return and, if applicable, the estate’s or trust’s
consent to electronic funds withdrawal.
