Preparing taxes as POA

I have to prepare taxes for my elderly mother.  I have POA and CAF.  Can I attach the 8453/2848 in TT?  If not, do I have to file the 1040 through mail?

Preparing taxes as POA

Here is the information on filing your mother's return. TurboTax does not support the 2848 form but it can be downloaded from the IRS site.

Form:  https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f2848.pdf
Instructions: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/i2848.pdf


You would have to physically sign a paper return and mail with the attached POA.
