MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to transmit e-files from CS Connect. Find out more.

Use the Send to Email Recipient dialog to send client data, documents, system settings, product settings, or updates to an encrypted file which UltraTax CS will attach to a blank email message. This file can also be password-protected.

To open the Send to Email Recipient dialog, choose File > Send to and select Email Recipient.

Use the Send to File Location dialog to send client data, documents, system settings, product settings, or updates to an encrypted file which you can password protect for additional security. UltraTax CS will create this file in the folder which you specify in this dialog.

To open the Send to File Location dialog, choose File > Send to and select File.

Notes

  • This dialog is not used to send tax returns to your clients in Portable Document Format (PDF) files. To do so, choose File > Print Returns, click the Client copy checkbox, mark the Electronic delivery checkbox, and then click the Email PDF option.
  • If your email service supports Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) protocol, use the Send to Email Recipient dialog to have UltraTax CS automatically open an email message and attach the data items.
  • If your email service does not support MAPI protocol, save the data items using the Send to File Location dialog, create your message and manually attach the file you created.
  • This dialog is not used to email PDF client organizers to clients using the UltraTax/1040 Client Organizer. To do so, choose File > Print Organizers and click the Email PDF or PDF to file in options, as appropriate.

  • Select System settings to send System settings data.
  • Select Product settings to send Product settings data.

Client list header row

Mark this checkbox to check out the selected clients' data. By checking out a client's data, you can avoid problems that result from multiple people accessing the same client data simultaneously.

For example, you might mark this checkbox when you take a client's data home or to another office location. If anyone attempts to open the client while you have the data checked out, they will receive a dialog stating that the data is currently checked out. If the person chooses to open the client anyway, this checkbox will be cleared.

Notes

Focus group box

Mark one or more of the entity type checkboxes to include the corresponding clients in the client list.

Example: To include only 1040 clients in the list, clear all checkboxes except the 1040 checkbox.

Note: Mark the Other checkbox to include 990, 5500, 706, and 709 clients in the list.

Click this button to toggle between the most recent custom Custom focus button focus selection and the default Default focus button selection.

Select a preparer, reviewer, or staff member from the drop-down list to limit the list to clients whose returns were assigned to a specific person.

This field displays the selected status event by which the client list is focused and the sorting criteria for that event. To limit the client list by a different status event or to change the sorting criteria, click the Modify button to open the Modify Event Focus dialog.

Click this button to change the selection in the adjacent field.
