District of Columbia to allow electronic signatures

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The District of Columbia will allow income tax, withholding and corporation/unincorporated franchise business tax returns to be signed electronically. The District will allow taxpayers and tax professionals to use digital signatures on forms, even those forms that cannot be filed electronically during the declared COVID-19 public health emergency.

Electronic filing. The District encourages taxpayers and tax professionals to electronically file returns. However, if electronic filing is not possible, taxpayers and tax professionals may digitally sign an income tax, withholding, or corporate/unincorporated franchise business tax return and mail in a printed copy of the return with the digital signature to the Office of Tax and Revenue. (OTR Notice 2020 -08, District of Columbia Office of Tax and Revenue, November 17, 2020).
