When you e-file Form 94x Series returns, you are required to e-sign your form to verify your identity as the authorized person e-filing the return. There are two ways to e-sign your Form 941. One is by using an online signature PIN and another through Form 8453-EMP.
You are required to complete Form 941 on a quarterly basis, so why not simplify the process? With an online signature PIN, you can instantly e-sign your form every time and avoid the hassle of having to download and complete Form 8453-EMP.

Upon approval, the IRS will send you a 10 digit Personal Identification Number (PIN). To activate your PIN, you must sign and return a statement acknowledging that you received your PIN within 10 days of receiving it. The entire PIN registration process can take up to 45 days.
If you do not receive your online signature PIN by the Form 941 deadline you can use Form 8453-EMP to e-sign and complete your 941 return.
