3rd party designee

Level 1

in all prior years i was shown automatically as 3rd party designee. now the field is blank. if i put a "1" in the input screen as a yes it still does not show me as designee. if i use the global feature and say yes to 3rd party designee it does not show and if i force it does not show. 

is there a fix for this? the hold time for the help center is over an hour. 

this program has become more and more unstable every year since Intuit took it over. Just sucks

If you read the bottom of the tax return it says under Third Party Designee - Do you want to allow another person (other than your paid preparer) to discuss this return with the IRS?


Then if you look under Paid Preparer to the right it says Check if:  3rd party designee

Level 15

Look for the check mark in the signature area.  Schedule 1 is not needed.
