A Portal is your personal document and file storage space accessible from our Website. It is free to clients.
Our portal is managed by a large third party provider called Sharefile. They are in the business of providing online storage and online collaboration resources for accounting, finance, healthcare, banking and other industries that require an extremely high level of data safety and security.
If you are a current client of Regina Young CPA, we are happy to setup a portal for you. If you don't already have a portal and would like to request one, simply click on the CONTACT button in the main menu and send us an email. We will set you up ASAP and send you an invitation to activate your account.
Once Activated, your portal is available to you 24 x 7 x 365.
How we use Portals:
Upon client request, we can upload Tax Returns and other documents to your portal.
We store your personalized Tax Organizer in your portal.
We archive accounting software backup files using your portal.
It is important to note - we do not automatically load your Tax Return to your portal. If you want your tax return(s) available through the portal, please send an email requesting it.
