You need a power of attorney to sign tax forms on behalf of another living adult. I'll assume your student daughter is over the age of majority in your state. That applies to an electronic signature on the federal return as well as the physical signature on your state return. If she's still a minor, you can sign her returns as her parent with no problem.Since she's getting refunds, there would be no penalty for filing her returns after she returns. (Gotta love the English language sometimes!)There's also a more practical answer, but since that is technically not legal, I won't spell it out. Just keep in mind that I don't believe the IRS or state tax agencies have a large staff of handwriting experts at their beck and call.--Peter
