When
Background screening, scoring, and Directory approval typically takes 3-5 business days to complete. However, due to the thorough nature of the screening process, turnaround times can vary.
How
Backgrounds Online obtains your approval to conduct your background screening, then performs a comprehensive review for potential criminal records. Once complete, your screening results are compared to the SPW scoring criteria to determine your status. Upon successfully completing the background check, you'll provide your desired directory listing information to gain further visibility in the tax preparation industry.
