A return is not considered valid unless it is signed.To sign a tax return for another person generally - you must be Court-appointed, conservator, or other fiduciary. If you are a court-appointed conservator, guardian, or other fiduciary for a mentally or physically incompetent individual who has to file a tax return, sign your name for the individual.
