Lying on form 4473 is a felony. Thankfully, you’re not too likely to run into that situation. What’s much more common is having to identify and fix honest mistakes in the 75 fields that your customer needs to complete in order to make a purchase.
You can spend time trying to keep your customers focused on the form, preventing distractions from other customers who just want a quick question answered, and making sure they don’t use a middle initial in Section A; or you can use E4473. It’s just that clearcut.
