Utilize Corrigan Krause’s SafeSend Organizer and Returns Tools for this Upcoming Tax Season

It’s that time of year again, tax time is here! Our goal is to take the headache out of the tax filing process – we’re here to help you make tax time less taxing. Every year, we strive to provide you with the best experience possible, and we take necessary steps to make the process easier and smoother than the previous year.

We are pleased to announce a streamlined organizer process. Instead of receiving a link with both the questionnaire and full organizer, you will only receive the questionnaire. If you’d like the full organizer, please contact safesendorganizers@corrigankrause.com. We’ll be happy to send it to you.

Finally, just like last year, your tax returns will be delivered by SafeSend Returns when it is complete.

What is SafeSend Organizers?

SafeSend Organizers is the software you’ll access to upload all of your tax documents electronically before the tax professionals at Corrigan Krause process your return. SafeSend Organizer will email you a link to access the questionnaire where you can answer the questions and upload the appropriate documents in the same place.

Why SafeSend Organizers?

SafeSend Organizers is a great tool for sending Corrigan Krause your necessary tax documentation because it increases the security around the sharing of your confidential tax documents. No more emailing sensitive documents; you’ll upload everything directly to your organizer for our professionals to process. SafeSend Organizer has an improved layout so it’s easier for you to see what you have already uploaded.

The turnaround time in preparation of your tax return will also decrease as our team no longer has to wait on mailed hard copies of your documentation. You will need to use a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer to complete the questionnaire. To upload your tax documents, though, you can simply snap a picture with your smartphone or scan your document and upload the image to SafeSend Organizers on any device. You retain a copy of all the documents you provide through the software, meaning you don’t have to wait for us to process and return any documents to you that you may need as we complete your tax return.

How SafeSend Organizers Work

If we have your email address on file, you will receive an email from Corrigan Krause CPAs and Consultants at noreply@safesendreturns.com. We recommend adding this email to your safe list to prevent it from being categorized as spam or junk. In the email, you’ll have a link to sign into your SafeSend Organizer. From here, you can start uploading all of your tax documents. For the best experience, we recommend using Google Chrome.

The Corrigan Krause SafeSend Organizers will roll out soon. All clients with email addresses are automatically enrolled in SafeSend Organizers.
