  • Starting with Accounting CS version 2016.4.0, you will be required to sign in to Accounting CS with your Thomson Reuters ID and password or your NetStaff CS account login (for firms that are licensed for NetFirm CS) before you log in to the application. The IRS has mandated that tax-related software providers add extra security measures to protect valuable client information. For detailed information about this added security, see CS Professional Suite application security overview.
