Is there an easy way to change the principal taxpayer, other than detaching and re-coupling?
I am finding that most of my files have the male as principal but, more often than not, I am communicating with the spouse. I use the client manager to batch send correspondence and when I want to send to only the principal, the one who should get the correspondence does not get it.
Going forward I will be making my Primary the one who I interact with most, but I would like to change the other files if its not too much trouble.
Alternatively, a secondary email on the file might be helpful to CC the email to.
Hey all, use the vote button if you like this idea so we can gauge how useful this would be for everyone.
This would be a fantastic feature as we run into this all the time but it’s too much of a hassle to change it manually. Not sure what the vote button is but I used the heart
Nice idea (the button to swap the principal taxpayer and spouse).
As such it would take a quarter second rather than a quarter minute to decouple and re-couple returns. It’s not a big issue in our firm - it would save at most 5 minutes per year of “wasted” time. But, it may be a feature to attract new TaxCycle users/customers, who don’t know how to uncouple/recouple returns - easier to find that button on the toolbar than to search the online TaxCycle help pages…
Not sure about the “secondary email” idea - I’m guessing that could be accomplished with the existing “custom fields”?
There is a button at the top of the thread:
Hi Sarka, couldn’t find the button, but yes, it would be a great feature. Thank you

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I have logged this to take a look at what we might be able to do to make this easier as part of our work for next tax season.
