Dear Customer:

Last year, as we created the Portal Express and Portal Pro products, we enhanced the Portal Branding feature to make the experience more intuitive. The new version of the Portal no longer requires you to know html, or host your image on a secure web page. Instead, you can easily select a color theme, font size, font family, upload your image and more. There are also improved security enhancements that will require the portal user to set up three security questions and answers when they first log into the new version of the portal.

It will be mandatory that all 5500 customers use the new version of the Portal beginning November 1, 2012, which is after the 2011 5500 filing season. You can make the switch now, before we switch everyone to the new portal in November:

Please remember that the 5500 portal is included as part of the 5500 package for no additional fee.
