This is the year…the year that e-filing of 1040s is not just a suggestion by the IRS, but mandatory. Are you ready? Effective January 1, 2011, preparers who expect to file 100 or more federal individual or trust tax returns during the year will be required to start using e-file. Preparers who expect to file 11 or more returns will be required to e-file beginning January 1, 2012. What you don't want to do is wait for IRS or state mandates to force you to scramble—be prepared before the busy season rolls around. Whether you're already e-filing, just getting started, or want to know more about available tax workflow tools, Thomson users are covered. Thomson is offering a selection of training options that will help users of UltraTax CS e-file with ease this year. You can review training options from their website. Nobody likes surprises during tax season. Be sure to be prepared for tax season and e-filing.
