E-file Authorization using KBA

E-file Authorization using KBA

Note: The IRS requires identity verification when using e-Signature.  If identity cannot be verified, the document must have a hand-written signature.

  1. Liscio has the option for eDocs to have verified e-Signatures using KBA (Knowledge Base Authentication).  The signer will be asked a series of multiple choice questions to confirm their identity.  
  2. KBA can be purchased along with eDocs to allow for the best user experience.
  3. When sending an eDoc, check mark the KBA box in the upper-right corner.  It's an easy one click to ensure the information provided is coming from the correct individual.
