  • The eSignature process requires a valid email address. During eSignature assembly, the application will notify you if a client does not have an email address entered in the Setup > Client Communications dialog > Email Address column.
  • 1040 returns: If the return has a filing status of married filing joint, a unique email address is required for both the taxpayer and the spouse. To enter an email address for the spouse, choose Sp from the drop-down menu in the Email Address column, and then enter the spouse's email address.
