14113: 1065 - Who Must Sign

1065 Partnership

Who must sign a 1065 Partnership Tax Return for it to be considered a "return"? 

Form 1065 isn't considered to be a return unless it is signed by a partner or LLC member. When a return is made for a partnership by a receiver, trustee, or assignee, the fiduciary must sign the return, instead of the partner or LLC member. Returns and forms signed by a receiver or trustee in bankruptcy on behalf of a partnership must be accompanied by a copy of the order or instructions of the court authorizing signing of the return or form.

When filing an AAR, Form 1065 must be signed by the partnership representative (or the designated individual if the partnership representative is an entity) for the reviewed year.

See the 1065 instructions for more information.
