The 6 Fundamentals of Paperless Tax Workpapers

Recently, we polled a group of tax professionals and 78% said that their 1040 review process was inefficient. Why? Because in today’s “paperless” world, most preparers lack the tools to prepare well documented workpapers so review efficiency suffers. In the paper-based world, tax professionals were taught to use standard workpaper documentation techniques like standardized indexes, tickmarks, annotations, cross referencing, etc. Those techniques minimized review time and maximized leverage but they have largely been lost in the move to “paperless”. By using software tailor-made for the efficient preparation and review of workpapers, firms can not only regain the leverage of their paper-based processes, but surpass it.
