Here's the dumb question of the day. I'm using Lacerte on a pay per return basis. The fees are called REP fees. What does REP stand for. I should probably know, but.......

Having worked for Lacerte / Intuit since 1989, I know the answer to this question! REP stands for Remote Entry Processing and harks back to the days when preparers would fill out paper forms and (snail) mail them to companies that would enter the data, process and print the returns, and mail them back. It was these preparers that REP was initially geared for. The name has really lost its meaning over the years, but so many long-term customers know it by REP that I suspect that's why the terminology hasn't changed.

I'll bet you're not the only one! That wasn't a dumb question at all, and I'm happy that I knew the answer!
