Sending Lacerte Tax Organizers to SmartVault

You can use the Organizer tool in Lacerte to transfer (print) your Client Organizers to SmartVault. Lacerte sends your Client Organizers from the previous year to each client’s corresponding current tax engagement folder in SmartVault. For example, you will print e-organizers from the 2020 Lacerte program to send them to your TY21 folders in SmartVault.
