Tax Protection Plus and ID Theft Restoration

SOLVEDby Intuit26Updated 3 weeks ago

The time-consuming task of untangling notices and audits from the IRS or state, or resolving a client case of identity theft can be daunting and time-consuming. Intuit partners with Tax Protection Plus to provide an affordable solution to help your clients navigate the process with ease and confidence.

For program details including eligibility requirements see Protection Plus & ID Theft Restoration offered by Tax Protection Plus

For tax year 2023 you have two enrollment options available:

  • Firm-level protection: Once enrolled, Protection Plus will activate for all of your 1040 returns automatically for only $10 each. No additional steps will be required to activate Protection Plus before filing the return.
  • ProSeries only - Per return protection: With this option, you can enroll specific 1040 clients for Protection Plus, in which each return you opt-in on will have a separate $59.95 fee.

How to enroll your firm:

You can enroll directly with Tax Protection Plus using the following links:

You can also enroll during the setup wizard when installing and setting up your 2023 tax software. 

If you use more than one professional tax product (ProSeries, ProSeries Basic, Lacerte or ProConnect Tax) on the same Customer Account Number the Firm Level Enrollment will apply to all products you have purchased. If you have more than one professional tax product but they are under different Customer Account Numbers each product would need to be enrolled separately.

  1. Open ProSeries 2023 to the HomeBase.
  2. From the Tools menu, select Protection Plus & ID Theft Restoration, then Protection Plus Enrollment Wizard.

    • Choose which clients to cover will enroll you in Per return protection: Once enrolled this allows you to use Protection Plus for one or many 1040 returns, where each return you opt-in on will have a separate $59.95 fee.
