  • Squash more bugs please

    by SwaggnificentLion

    ...namely: -the status update section (currently just reads "Active" only). I have client returns that have been funded already, (a more specific status should be in place, or adjustable). -emailing client tax documents is not working properly ("continue" button is not functioning after entering an encryption code -- "cancel" works just fine though).

  • Good - read this if updating

    by WELCPA

    I've been using the app for about a year, but after the latest update I had difficulty getting the app to work properly. It appears that others have experienced the same problem, so I'll share what I did to get it working for me. (Simply removing the app and reinstalling didn't work for me.) 1. Remove the app 2. Shut-down the device 3. Restart the device 4. Reinstall the app and login After this, my client list appeared and I was able to send an invitation to the Intuit Client Mobile app to myself. I haven't been able to test the new features yet, but I'll try to post an update once I do. I hope this is helpful to those that have had trouble getting the app working.

  • Decent Update

    by K Smoot

    I'm updating my review since the new version release. I haven't been able to use TaxLink yet but would like ITO to reset the efile statuses for 2013 returns. They still show 2012.

    I had to delete from my phone and reload from iCloud to get it to work.

  • Annoying notification indicator

    by trpnstn

    The icon shows 5 notifications, but nothing in the app to clear them.

    by Alcpagroup

    Great app for CPA firms who are on cutting edge of technology.

  • Great Addition to the Intuit Tax Online Experience

    by GeekyMom

    Provides easy way always have access to client's return information no matter where I am. I've used it to check the status a returns, look up an address on the way to a client, and even to look over a retun on my iPad while reviewing source documents on my computer screen. And the new push nofication feature let me address a rejected return ASAP without needing to login to the website to check status. If I could also use it to e-file a return on the go it would be perfect....

  • Love it!!

    Great app. Gives great information at your fingertips!!

  • Great app!

    by Kaleylou

    I love this App! At my fingertips, no matter where I am, I can answer questions for clients. I can actually see a PDF of their return. It has my clients contact info readily available for me and from the app I can call them or send them an email. This year, I used this feature to address my Christmas cards to my clients while riding (no, I was not driving) in the car!! The security is superb! I have a 6-digit security pin code that I use AFTER I have used a log in name and password to get to me clients basic information should I want to access more detailed information. No worry for my clients confidentially. Also, from the app, I have the ability to contact Intuit should I have questions or problems! Such a great company and a very great idea for busy tax preparers like me!!
