Also known as the "Excise Tax Declaration for an IRS E-File Return,"
the 8453-EX is a declaration
by a taxpayer to authenticate an electronic form 2290 and authorize an intermediate service
provider to transmit your return using a third-party transmitter.
A taxpayer e-filing directly with ExpressTruckTax.com
is not required to file an 8453-EX. However,
if an accountant or other service provider
files on your behalf, you are required to sign an 8453-EX
to authorize the transmission. The 8453-EX will be e-filed along with your form 2290.
