How can we help you?

Tax professional dashboard

Our tax pro website's dashboard gives our tax professional partners an overview of their business. The dashboard is updated daily, providing a quick overview as the season progresses. The location of components on the dashboard may changed based on time of year and what information is most important to view daily.


Search for a taxpayer


One of the biggest time saving features of our dashboard is the taxpayer search. Start entering a client's SSN and when your client's information is displayed, select your client to quickly find an overview of their account.

View Report
Each section of the dashboard contains a related report. Drill down for more details by clicking on the View Report link and running a related report for more details about information that is summarized in a section of the dashboard. Note: The Staff dashboard section has a link to "Manage users" which takes you to the page where you can manage your employee users.
