If you are a reporting agent filing Form 943 on behalf of a client, the client must sign Form 943. This can be done using Form 8453EMP.

You can use this endpoint to download the 8453EMP Form (with reference to the RecordId) and send it to the client. The client, in turn, will sign the form and return it to you. You can then use the UploadForm8453Emp endpoint to upload the signed form to TaxBandits API.


In order to use this endpoint, you must have specified the Signature Type as “FORM 8453 EMP” in the Create request of Form 943.

The response will return the PDF in a byte array encoded in base64 in the response. You'll need to convert this byte array to a PDF file format. Below is an example code snippet for reference.
