TaxCaddy

TaxCaddy – mobile 1040 tax return software for CPA firms

Eliminate the paper organizer and increase client satisfaction

Your clients want convenient, mobile options that the paper organizer doesn’t deliver. That’s why we designed TaxCaddy with the taxpayer in mind!

TaxCaddy uses proforma data in your existing tax software (CCH Axcess Tax, CCH ProSystem fx Tax, GoSystem Tax RS, Lacerte, UltraTax) to create a tailored questionnaire and document request list. Your clients can use the TaxCaddy app for iPhone and Android to complete the questionnaire when it’s convenient for them.

More than 300 banks, brokerages and payroll service providers can be linked to automatically retrieve 1098s, 1099s and W-2s as soon as they’re issued. Because the documents are available to you immediately, you can start the return sooner than ever before.

Your clients will love TaxCaddy’s e-signatures, in-app messaging and user-friendly design. You can even invoice your clients when you deliver the tax return. It’s a breeze to set up and simple to use.
