Updates to PTO

  • Smart navigation. ProConnect intelligently predicts the tax forms and suggests what is needed for a client based on data and common workflow patterns.
  • Assign and manage work. Assign and sort client returns by staff members, then re-assign each return as it changes hands within your firm, to monitor team workloads and return status.
  • Lock returns. You can now auto-lock e-filed returns to prevent manual entry errors and calculation updates that may alter the original e-filed tax return.
  • Expanded eFile status. Once filed, easily view the file status by return type (federal, state and extensions).
  • Multiple preparer awareness. Tax pros can get a full view of any users working on the same tax return to avoid version conflicts or overwriting each other's work.
  • eSignature improvements. Seamlessly access eSig in your workflow. Improved Account Management makes new user onboarding simple and easy for current users.
  • Tax return reports. (Coming soon) You can soon export clients' data from standard tax return fields and query data based on common tax scenarios.
  • Improved jump-to input coverage. (Coming soon) For tax form fields with multiple inputs, you can view a summary of sources and values included in the calculation, then quickly jump to the data input screen from the tax form field in one click.

Updates to Lacerte

  • Verify your EFIN in Lacerte. Manage your EFIN more efficiently directly within Lacerte.
  • New billing profile. Billing for Lacerte, Intuit eSignature, and Tax Scan and Import has been consolidated into a single wallet. Now you won't have to re-enter your information every time you want to make a purchase.
  • Easier onboarding to Hosting for Lacerte. New and returning subscribers can get up and running faster with Lacerte in the cloud via automated data transfer.
  • Lacerte Actionable Steps for Error Resolution (LASER). Quickly self-resolve problems in Lacerte as they arise by making use of actionable links made available when and where you need them to minimize any disruption to your workflow.
  • Lacerte 200 Federal 1040 enhancements. Now you can keep track of the returns you've used with an on-screen counter. You'll also get a message when you're nearing your bundle limit.
  • eSignature improvements . Tax Pros can now batch send eSig requests on the same document from multiple signers at one go. Improved Account Management makes new user onboarding seamless and easy for current users.
  • Tax accuracy notifications. (Coming soon) Tax pros can now receive proactive notifications about returns that were affected by tax law or other changes after you filed them and what to do next.

Updates to ProSeries

  • QuickBooks integration. We've updated your experience with a new dialog box that can auto-detect open QuickBooks files and allows you to set beginning and end dates, and the basis for a client's return.
  • Prior-year background color. Now you can know whether you're working on a client's current-year return or their prior-year return based on different background colors on-screen.
  • Integrated calculator enhancements. Now, ProSeries will respond to your Windows settings, grow and shrink to your preferred size, and allow for three types of data entry.
  • New billing profile. Billing for ProSeries, Intuit eSignature, and Tax Scan and Import has been consolidated into a single wallet. Now you won't have to re-enter your information every time you want to make a purchase.
  • HomeBase view functionality. Custom HomeBase view and filtering are now available for ProSeries Basic. And ProSeries Professional users can automatically transfer their custom views from their tax year 2020 software to their tax year 2021 software.
  • eSignature improvements. You can now initiate eSig right from your Homebase view, saving even more time. As a low-touch alternative to the current eSig request widget, Tax Pros can send eSig requests with a single click. Improved Account Management, along with trial awareness placements in right rail, makes new user onboarding seamless and simple for current eSig users.
  • Tax accuracy notifications. (Coming soon) You can receive proactive notifications about returns that were affected by tax law or other changes after you filed them and what to do next.
  • Background updater. (Coming soon) ProSeries will soon automatically download, verify, and install updates when they're available without disrupting your workflow.
