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.

The Department of Labor (DOL) has instructed that we 'catch' Invalid signature codes before the electronic file is sent to the DOL.

The screen below will open for electronically signed returns IF invalid codes have been entered to sign a return either through the Website Signer Method or the Direct Signer Method. The preparer should then go to efast.dol.gov and log in with the User ID and Password (not PIN) to determine whether he/she can do so. If the preparer cannot log in, the preparer needs to reset his/her password. If the preparer can then log in, he/she need to confirm that the 'Filing Signer' checkbox on the bottom of the profile screen (User Profile link is on the left) is marked.
