Driving innovation to streamline the 1040 tax workflow, SurePrep caters to CPA firms, wealth management firms, and other tax professionals that process 1040s. From three of the Big Four to sole practitioners, over 23,000 tax professionals rely on SurePrep’s solutions.
SurePrep provides the most comprehensive 1040 productivity solutions on the market, including TaxCaddy, 1040SCAN, and SPbinder. A taxpayer-focused collaboration system, TaxCaddy allows users to upload tax documents or pictures of the same through iOS and Android mobile apps.
The various forms uploaded to TaxCaddy seamlessly flow into 1040SCAN, the leading scan-and-populate solution on the market. 1040SCAN automates and captures 4-7 times as many documents as other solutions, and handles all levels of complexity, enabling reviewers to examine the workpapers and tax returns prior to filing them.
“We leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to automate data capturing and cover four to seven times as many documents as our competitors,” says David Wyle, President and CEO at SurePrep.
1040SCAN’s patented Optical Character Recognition (OCR) auto-verification technology eliminates the need for manual verification after data is captured from many documents. The technology identifies what is correct and what is not, helping tax professionals save significant time.
In the final reviewing step, SurePrep’s SPbinder allows the reviewer to track down a value on the tax return all the way to its source document. The solution reduces review time for managers and partners by facilitating detailed workpaper preparation at the staff level.
SurePrep’s solutions also leverage AI to recognize K-1s and provide a simple and intuitive way to reclassify the data. This allows preparers to easily assign K-1 supplemental data to the correct income and expense categories.

The combination of SurePrep’s feature-loaded solutions has been of great help in effectively addressing some of the most pressing demands that accounting and tax firms face today. In one instance, SurePrep helped its long-standing client, BDO, leverage new technological capabilities to optimize the 1040 process. Soon, the firm was able to automate workpaper organization and data entry using 1040SCAN, prepare standardized, easy-to-review workpapers using SPbinder, and provide taxpayers with the ability to upload and share their documents from their laptop or smartphone using TaxCaddy. As a result, BDO was able to improve their 1040 process across the board, increase productivity, enhance client experience, and use their time and talent more efficiently.
SurePrep’s solutions streamline and automate the entire 1040 process, from data gathering, capturing, and review to tax return delivery. The market leader in intelligent data capture, SurePrep is at the forefront of building solutions that are transforming the tax and accounting industry and helping clients facilitate a completely digital tax workflow.
