Web Organizer overview

Show expandable text

Web Client Organizer is the electronic version of Client Organizer that enables you to send client organizers to your clients through a private NetClient CS web portal. A web portal is a secure environment that requires a unique password to access.

Your clients have the ability to enter new data in screens, make edits to proforma'd data, complete the organizer questionnaire, include notes and questions for you, attach files, create screens for new activities (such as W-2s), and then send the electronic organizer to you through the web portal.

Note: Apple computers are not supported for CS Professional Suite applications including for NetClient CS.

Once a client returns the web organizer, you can retrieve the client's data directly into the organizer input screens. The processing procedures for Web Client Organizer are similar to that for Client Organizer and Email Client Organizer.

Client Organizer content options

The Lite Client Organizer feature offers an abridged organizer package that can be used for the paper, email, and web versions of UltraTax/1040 Client Organizer. The Lite Client Organizer package contains the most common data entries to help meet the needs of most taxpayers. When you use the Lite Client Organizer package along with other source documents, such as Forms W-2 and 1099 and Schedule K-1, your clients are required to make fewer entries.

Just like the tax input screens and forms, the organizer input screens are grouped in folders that appear in the folders block on the left side of the screen. The input screens are nearly identical to the organizer pages you send to your 1040 clients, so data entry is quick and easy.
