Re: Is it possible to export W2 employer name?

Thanks for taking the time to respond and provide such great information. I appreciate your honesty and transparency 🙂

The issue with the partial organizer is that it spreads the information across too many pages. It's easy for a client to get confused or miss something.


What kind of page are you looking for?

It would be better for our clients to recevie a single page PDF containing a bullet point list of what they need to gather.

Items included (if applicable to the client) would be:

What's it going to do for you?

As the preparers, this list is going to help us ensure we received all the applicable data from the client.

As the client, this list is going to make it easy for them to see all the information they need to send us.


I imagine this being a two part project.

One, export this data to an excel file.

Two, create PDF documents based on the excel columns.


Does that make sense? Any idea of the effort (hours) required to accomplish this?


Thanks again!
