Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be the Expert assisting you today. I look forward to helping you with your issue today. If you forgot to sign your tax return, the IRS won't consider it a valid return. From there, the IRS may request a signature from you with a supplemental letter. If you are due a refund this could delay the processing time for the refund. You can file a second return to the IRS, which is signed and dated since the first return is not considered a valid tax return.

I hope I’ve provided the information you were seeking. If you are happy with my service, your 5-star rating at this time is most welcome. If you need more help, please let me know so l can continue to assist you.

I signed the return but did not DATE it.

The tax return must be signed AND dated. The taxing authorities will take the position that the return is not valid since it was only signed.
