Each partner who was a partner in the partnership during the tax year for which the election is filed must sign the form. This includes all partners during the year, not just those who are partners at the end of the year. General Instructions A husband and wife are generally considered as one partner, and should both sign the election. Corporate partners should name the corporation, with the signature of the appropriate corporate officer. Attach a continuation sheet if more signature space is needed. Section references are to the Internal Revenue Code unless otherwise noted. Purpose of Form Form 8893 is used only by small partnerships electing the unified audit and litigation procedures as set forth in section 6231(a)(1)(B)(ii) (prior to amendment by BBA). A “small partnership” is defined as any partnership having 10 or fewer partners each of whom is an individual (other than a nonresident alien), a C corporation, or an estate of a deceased partner. For this purpose, a husband and wife (and their estates) are treated as one partner. How To File This form must be attached to the partnership return for the tax year shown and must be filed by the due date of the return (including extensions). If the partnership files Form 1065 on time, the election can be made on an amended return filed no later than 6 months after the due date (excluding extensions) of the original return. Write “FILED PURSUANT TO SECTION 301.9100-2” in the top margin of the amended return and file it at the same address the original return was filed. The election will be effective for the partnership tax year to which the return relates and all subsequent tax years unless revoked with IRS consent. However, the election will not be effective for tax years beginning after 2017. A revocation of the election can be requested by filing Form 8894, Request to Revoke Partnership Level Tax Treatment Election.

About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
