Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Is it safe to enter my Social Security number?

A: Yes. SafeSend is a secure platform for viewing and signing your e-file authorization form(s). Look for HTTPS:// at the beginning of the site URL and/or a locked padlock symbol in your browser’s URL bar to confirm you’re using a secure site.


Q: Where do the identity verification questions come from? What if I don’t remember the answer?

A: The questions SafeSend Returns ask are knowledge-based questions pulled from government and credit sources. You may be asked things like where you lived in a given year, or when you bought your car or home. If you don’t remember the answers to the questions or answer incorrectly, you won’t be able to sign your e-file authorization form(s) electronically. Instead, you can print, sign, and return your e-file authorization form(s) to GranthamPoole.


Q: My spouse and I file our return jointly – how can we both sign the e-file authorization form(s)?

A: If both spouses have an email address on file, each will receive an email with a link to view the return, answer identity verification questions, and sign the e-file authorization form(s). If only one spouse has an email address on file, that spouse will first receive the link with identity verification questions specific to him/her. He/she will sign the e-file authorization form(s) then enter an email address for the second spouse. The second spouse will receive the email link with identity verification questions specific to him/her and sign the form(s). If a couple shares an email address, you’ll receive an email with identity verification questions specific to one spouse. After he/she answers the identity verification questions and signs the e-file authorization form(s), he/she can enter the shared email address again. A new link will send to the shared email address with identity verification questions specific to the second spouse/signer. He/she will answer the identity verification questions, then sign the form(s).


Q: Will I have the option to download and print my return for my records? If so, how long will I have access to it?

A: Yes, a copy of your return is accessible via a unique, secure access link for seven years. In addition, you can download a copy of your return for printing at any time.


Q: After signing my e-file authorization form(s), will I receive confirmation that it successfully sent to GranthamPoole?

A: Yes. Once you sign your e-file authorization form(s), you’ll receive an email stating it was successful. The email will also include a link to download a copy of your tax return for your records.


Q: Will this work on any internet-connected device?

A: You can complete this process on any computer, smartphone, or tablet via a web browser.


Q: What if I don’t receive an email with my access code?

A: Check your spam or junk email folders. If you don’t enter the code within the 10-minute time limit, request another.
