Does my mother need to sign forms 2848 and 8453? As durable POA I will be signing and e-filing her returns as she is age 94 suffering from dementia and is 600 miles away
bwa--thank you. since I was planning on e-filing her returns is there a way to send a "scanned" POA attachement with the return? Also, is a 2848 needed for her Ohio State return? From your answer, it appears that a 8453 form is NOT necessary. Correct? Thanks.
