Even the most advanced tax preparation scan and populate technology requires human verification. SurePrep clients can skip the OCR verification step for native PDFs, but for non-native PDFs, a human being must verify that the data extracted from source documents like W-2s, 1099s, 1098s, etc. is accurate before exporting to tax software. For some firms, the time and staffing commitment involved in OCR verification can put a significant strain on resources, and not all firms are interested in a full preparation Outsource service.
SurePrep's 1040SCANverify is a more affordable middle ground between full preparation outsource and traditional scan and populate. This software and service hybrid outsources only the human OCR verification, while still allowing your in-house staff to work on the more complex areas of the return. With 1040SCANverify and 1040SCANverify+ you can get 80% of the work done for 20% of the cost of full preparation outsource. That’s why 1040SCANverify has become the fastest-growing and most popular SurePrep offering.
