Form Updates

This section contains new and updated tax returns, schedules, and filing reports. Any return that is updated will have new taxpayer preferences.  The old taxpayer preferences will not be in effect for the new version of the return.  It is the recommended best practice to review taxpayer preferences and scenarios for each return revision to ensure that customer-specific settings are using the correct values and are up to date with the defaults provided in the product.

In this section, any existing return that is revised is described as ‘Added revised xxx effective Month Day, Year’ where xxx represents the jurisdiction, taxpayer type and return name for the specified form.  These are forms that have a new version and must be evaluated to determine if company specific scenarios and taxpayer preferences require revision.

In this section any new return that is added is described as ‘Added new xxx effective Month Day, Year’ where xxx represents the jurisdiction, taxpayer type and return name for the specified form.  These are brand new forms that were not previously in the system.  The forms will need to be evaluated to determine if company specific scenarios and / or taxpayer preferences are required.

In this release there are 29 revised forms and 3 new forms.
