In an effort to prevent identity theft, protect our tax professional customers and comply with IRS requirements, we have implemented a number of new safeguards for TaxAct Professional 2016. The first change you’ll see is requiring all users of TaxAct Professional Editions to sign in upon starting their software to access client returns.
You will be required to sign in each time you open the software and after 30 minutes of inactivity on your PC or every 24 hours (whichever comes first).
The IRS Security Summit’s new requirements apply to all professional tax products across the industry, including TaxAct Professional’s solutions. For more information, view our FAQ on TaxAct Professional, IRS and State Agencies Expand ID Theft Safeguards.
