E-File Registration Requirements for Tax Practitioners
Alabama has only two requirements to be accepted as an ERO into the AL E-File Program.
Note: It is not necessary for you to mail us the AL8453 Alabama Signature document or W-2’s, etc. Please retain all AL/IRS Forms/Schedules in your files for 3 years.
Alabama does not allow the tax preparer to sign the return with the Practitioner PIN.Â If you receive a fee to prepare a taxpayer’s Alabama return, then the paid preparer’s information must be completed on the return.
