TaxSlayer ProWeb allows you to set the third party designee in a tax return to the preparer by default or leave the field blank. If the designee is the preparer, the "3rd Party Designee" check box will be checked 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 pre-filled third party designee from all returns, from the Welcome Screen of the program select:
- Office Setup
- Disable Third Party Designee Prefill - check the box
To remove or change the Third Party Designee in an existing return, from the Tax Return Summary screen select:
