Making Changes to Form 8453

 
What changes to the Form 8453 can the ERO make?

Once you have signed the tax form 8453, the ERO cannot make changes to this document that exceeds specific tolerances established by the IRS without preparing a new form. These tolerances are:

  1. The amount of total income or AGI does not differ from the amount of the electronic portion of the tax return by more than $50 or

     

  2. The amount of:

     

    • Total tax

       

    • Federal income tax withheld

       

    • refund or

       

    • amount you owe does not differ from the amount on the electronic portion of the tax return by more than $14

If one of these amounts does exceed the tolerance limit, you will need to sign a new Form 8453 showing the changes before the return can be filed.

 

Can I make changes to the Form 8453 after the IRS has accepted my tax return?

Once the IRS has accepted your e-file tax return, you are not able to make any changes to it such as canceling a direct deposit request.

 

Can I send another tax return after my return has just been accepted by the IRS?

Sending in a paper return at this point would result in the IRS having a duplicate return for you and this could result in a delay of your tax refund.

 

How to make quick changes after the IRS has accepted my tax return?

If you need to change your return after it has been accepted by the IRS, you should send a paper amended return. After the IRS has accepted the original return, the refund should be issued within 3 weeks. However, some refunds may be delayed because of compliance reviews to ensure that returns are accurate.
