  10. Tax Preparer’s Acceptance: The tax preparer will receive an email invitation to access your QuickBooks Online account. They will need to accept the invitation and set up their own Intuit account or sign in with their existing Intuit account.

Once the tax preparer accepts the invitation, they will have access to your QuickBooks Online account with the permissions you specified. They can then work on your financial data, prepare tax returns, and collaborate with you as needed.

Remember that you can remove or modify the tax preparer’s access and permissions at any time by going to the “Manage Users” section in your QuickBooks Online account settings.
