How to accept the Link invitation sent from your tax preparer

SOLVEDby IntuitLacerte Tax3Updated July 14, 2022

For assistance with accepting the invite sent by either your tax preparer or accountant, follow the guidance below.

Before you start:

  • Anyone invited into Intuit Link will be required to have a User ID and password.
  • Your User ID will be the email address that the Link invitation was sent to.
  • A 10-digit phone number is required to create an Intuit account.
  • In the steps below, when referring to the taxpayer, they're referring to you as the recipient of the Intuit Link invite.

To accept a Link invitation from your accountant:

  1. In the Link email received from the accountant, click the Accept button.
  2. Click Continue on the Sign Up page.
    • If the taxpayer needs to use a different email address, do not press the Continue button but contact your accountant and ask them to re-send the invitation to a different email address.
  3. The website will then check to see if the taxpayer has an Intuit account with the email address that the accountant sent the Link invitation to.
    • If an online account with the email address that the Link invitation was sent to already exists, the taxpayer will be prompted to enter their password. If the taxpayer cannot remember their password, click the I forgot my user ID or password link under the sign in button to reset the password. For more information on how to reset your password, see here.
    • If the taxpayer does not have an Intuit online account, they will need to create an account. The email address that the accountant sent the invite to will be the taxpayer's User ID.  The taxpayer will be asked to enter their phone number and create a password. Then click Create Account.
  4. Next, the Welcome screen will appear. To begin sharing tax data with the accountant, click Let's Get Started.

Once you are logged in, you will see the questions and document requests that your accountant has sent to you.

To get back to the taxpayer Link login page, go to We recommend bookmarking the website so you can easily access it in the future.
