We have several methods you may utilize to transfer files to us. You may use one or several different types. However, once you send us documents through one method, you don't need to duplicate the process through another.
This is our preferred method of transfer as it is secure and places your documents directly into your personal file. You will also be able to access any files we have available to you. To use our SmartVault portal, you will receive an email invitation from our office. You will need to click on the link in the email to create a SmartVault portal user ID and password. Once your account has been created, you will be taken to your vault. You may upload documents to the Source Document folder in the appropriate year.
Intuit Link is used to upload documents while filling out the Tax Organizer questionnaire. We can request documents from you here and alert us when you have completed the requests.
Please watch for your Intuit Link invite when we send out the Tax Organizer. Registration is simple, just use your email address and a password of your choice.
