TaxSlayer Pro allows you to default the third party designee to either the preparer, another designee, or leave the field blank. If the designee is the preparer, the 3rd Party Designee box will be marked in the Paid Preparer Use Only section of Form 1040. If the preparer is not the 3rd Party Designee, the information will print in the Third Party Designee section on Form 1040.
To remove the third party designee from all returns, from the Main Menu of the program select:
- Printer / Copies Setup
- Advanced Print Setup
Default Third Party Designee to - Choose Leave Blank.
Note that this setting applies to new returns. To remove the third party designee from an existing return, from the Main Menu of the tax return (From 1040) select:
- Personal Information
- Other Categories
- Allow Another Person to Discuss Return With IRS - Select No.
