Why does the preparer information not appear at the bottom of the GA8453?
The Paid Preparer’s Signature is not provided by the software.
The Firm’s Name and Address are provided if the ERO and the Paid Preparer are different. In the example below, they are the same, so rather than display duplicate information, the box in the ERO’s Use Only section (Check if also paid preparer) is checked. This is consistent with the GA DOR Instructions.
