The Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) has announced that it is extending, through the end of the year, guidance allowing its employees to receive documents by email and transmit documents via email to taxpayers and representatives with their consent. This is done using SecureZip (a program that encrypts email attachments) or other authorized secured messaging system. As with prior guidance, TAS employees may also accept images of signatures (scanned or photographed) and digital signatures on various IRS and TAS official documents. Previously, the guidance was due to expire on June 30.  Call or visit our website for more information!
