More About Form 8453

Form 8453: U.S. Individual Income Tax Transmittal for an IRS e-file Return is the form used to send any required paper forms or supporting documentation related to the checkboxes on the front of the form.

As the form instructions note, you shouldn’t attach any form or document that’s not shown on the front of the form. If you’re required to mail in any documentation not listed on Form 8453, you can’t e-file your return.
