As you work to prepare taxes for your clients, you can print the resulting paperwork directly to SmartVault. If you've never set up this client in SmartVault, an entry record is created when you print a tax return to SmartVault. There's no additional information needed for setting up your client; SmartVault receives all the information straight from Lacerte.
Additionally, SmartVault automatically sets up a folder structure to organize the documents you print. We'll discuss how these folders are created and what they are used for later in this guide.
Even though SmartVault creates your client and sets up that client's folder structure, your client doesn't have access to any of these folders yet. You'll still need to invite the client to view his or her folders in your SmartVault account, as you'll see in the third section of this trial guide.
