CCH has updated its ProSystem fx Tax solution with new, integrated CCH eSign functionality in response to the Internal Revenue Service’s recent change to Form 8879, which allows for electronic signatures and authorizes electronic filing of tax returns.

“Because Form 8879 needed to be physically signed by the taxpayer on paper, that back-and-forth, last step for e-filing returns was a big hurdle to clear, especially in crunch time,” stated Angela Askew, CCH software product manager. “Our advanced CCH eSign solution supports new IRS requirements for Form 8879—and other forms allowing electronic signatures. The integration of Form 8879 with CCH eSign and CCH’s Electronic Filing Status System simplifies the process for our customers—saving valuable time.”
