Attached wrong 8453-PE but IRS accepts my 1065 return - am I ok?

I have to file for a few LLCs, but was tired. So, I attached the wrong 8453-PE to the e-filing of a 1065 (LLC) tax return. It was my signature, and correct date, but the wrong EIN, and obviously Part I doesn't match.

 

But, the IRS accepted the 1065 return.

 

Should I mail a corrected copy of the form to the IRS? If so, I was thinking it would go to the address I would use if mailing in the return.

 

(I tried making a 1065X (saving the turbotax file into a new file), and adding a MISC statement explaining the bad 8453-PE file, but Turbotax would not submit it since no numbers or tax info had changed! )

 

Or is this more of a form that Turbotax/Intuit uses for their internal records? And the IRS does not care?

 

Should I let sleeping dogs lie?

It is not necessary to mail a copy to the IRS. 

 

The form 8453-PE is used to authorize TurboTax to file your 1065 return. 

 

TurboTax also uses additional authorizations in addition to this form. 

 

Retain the form in the case that TurboTax or the IRS should ever request it.

You're ok if the return was accepted. What I'd do though is mail an 8453-PE with the right EIN and a letter of explanation for safety's sake.

That's fine except with the EIN being wrong on the 8453-PE which return did the user authorize turbotax to file?

The tax return was the base document, not the attachment.  You can verify the return in the acknowledgement document.

Everything was fine within the return itself.

Only the 8453-PE was wrong. Different company. Different EIN. Same signatory. Correct signature date.

 

I basically filed a couple of LLCs on the same day, and made a mistake with what was on my scanner.

Sounds like the 8453-PE is a TURBOTAX document given them authorization to forward to the IRS.

Since you attached an 8453-PE for the wrong return, it's as if you mailed a paper return without signing it.  The worse thing that will happen is the IRS will send you a letter telling you that you need to file a new Form 8453-PE for the return in question.  Or, they may not notice it.

The question really is "DOES THE IRS GET THIS FORM OR NOT"?

 

If it just enables Turbotax to forward it on, with an e-signature in lieu of this form, then it's not necessary to mail it.

 

But, if it actually goes with the return, then, yeah, I need to send it on. There is no MAILING ADDRESS associated with this form, so I am just going to send it to my processing center.

.....Or the IRS could consider the return to not be timely filed.....late.....and the penalty for that is $210 for each month the return is late times each partner. Is there a reason to take a chance on this? It's easy to cure.
