Lacerte Single Sign On (SSO)

steven

Frequently our Tax Professionals need to access multiple years of Lacerte, generally for the same client.  It makes no sense for a user, who is already signed in, to need to sign in multiple times on the same machine to access other versions of the program.

I would like to see Single Sign On applied to Lacerte Login access across all versions of Lacerte that require credentials (2016 and up I believe) and that the time out period should be based upon the last use of any open version.

It's not Intuit you need to talk to.  You'll need to speak with the IRS and may be your Congressman or Senator.  If this this what you really want, you may also need to brush up on what Pub 4557 says.

I have looked at the pubs and fail to see anything that is inconsistent with this, other than maybe the time out period I suggest.  I could live with that.

I had to sign on in Firefox to vote for this, even tho I arrived on link from Lacerte. Also for some reason Firefox is not remembering me and I have to do Captcha AND 2FA each time I sign on to Intuit in Firefox.

Such a single sign-on for multiple years would be very helpful!

Agreed, we also use some Thomson Reuters products, once signed into one of them we don't have to continually login to each program we open after that.
