Repeat High Priority Reminder:
While uTax and our banking partners send annual office setup and enrollment reminders each season, we strongly encourage you to pay special attention this year and act NOW. Why? It has been widely reported and acknowledged by our banking partners, that the nationwide shortage of transportation workers and overall labor pool and could affect the ability to receive your marketing materials and check stock in a timely manner. This impact is only expected to increase as we approach the busy holiday season.

Don’t forget that for our returning partners, information is carried forward from the previous year and in most cases, simply requires a careful review.
