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.

Each preparer that has been entered in UltraTax CS must be assigned to a firm if licenses for multiple firm branches or share offices have been installed to the same application location. (If only one firm's license is installed in the application location, the preparer will be assigned to a firm by default.)

Complete the following steps to assign each preparer to a firm.

  1. From the Setup menu, choose Office Configuration.

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

  2. Click the Preparers tab in the Office Configuration dialog.
  3. Highlight the appropriate preparer.
  4. Click the Edit button.
  5. In the Preparer Information dialog, select the appropriate firm in the Associate of firm field.

    Note: For information on adding or editing other information in this dialog, see Entering preparer information.

  6. Click OK.

Repeat these steps for each preparer.

Tip: You can set up a default preparer so that all new clients are automatically assigned to that preparer. (If necessary, the assignment can be overridden in the New Client or Client Properties dialog.) To set up a default preparer, select Setup > User Preferences > My Settings tab.
