What is ERO in Form 8453-CORP?
AI accountant’s answer:
ERO stands for Electronic Return Originator. In the context of Form 8453-CORP, ERO refers to the person or entity that originally prepared and transmitted a corporation's electronic income tax return. An ERO can be the taxpayer, a tax professional, or an authorized agent. Form 8453-CORP is used to authenticate the electronic corporate income tax return (Form 1120, 1120S, or 7004) filed through the Electronic Filing System (EFS). The ERO must sign Form 8453-CORP, and it serves as a declaration that the information in the electronic income tax return is true, correct, and complete.
