MFA required for electronic filing

Effective May 3rd, the 2017 version of UltraTax CS requires multi-factor authentication (MFA) to access the electronic filing transmission feature in CS Connect.

Thomson Reuters is committed to proactively evolving our security features to help you protect your firm and your clients' data. For more information about multi-factor authentication, see Multi-factor authentication overview.

Use this procedure to specify setup options for all 1120 clients subsequently added to UltraTax CS. UltraTax CS also applies options set in this dialog the first time you open a client whose data was converted from another tax program.

  1. Choose Setup > 1120 Corporation.

    Note: Depending on your security configuration, you might be prompted to enter the master password and click OK before you can continue.

  2. Click the Federal tab.
  3. Click the New Client Options button to open the New Client Options dialog.


    • Until you change them again, the options you choose in this dialog apply to all 1120 clients subsequently added to UltraTax CS. Clearing any option from the New Client Options dialog does not affect existing 1120 clients. You must open each individual client and edit accordingly if you do not want a particular option to be used.
    • UltraTax CS applies the settings in this dialog to all 1120 clients whose data was converted from another tax program. These settings are applied the first time you open the client.
