Another reminder that throughout the tax season, and especially before the official opening of 1040 e-File by the IRS on January 23, it is extremely important to maintain your desktop software program(s) at the latest version as you begin preparing tax returns for your clients. Be sure to transmit at least daily to check for and apply released state packages and federal and state software updates.
This important reminder applies to:
Individual Federal 1040 and State Programs
Federal Corporate Business Program and State Programs.
Currently, the Individual Federal 1040 Program is at version 2023.09 and the Federal Corporate Business Program is at version 2023.01. Individual and Business State Program versions will vary.
In this short 4 minute video, we will show you how easy it is to verify the program version and retrieve and apply software updates for both the Federal and State tax programs, including steps for installing software updates on non-transmitting computers.
We also maintain a Individual Federal and Corporate Business State Program Release Release Statuspage on our Resource Center > Home Page > Quick Links. This page is updated throughout the day.
Most partners can access the Resource Center directly from the software program > Work in Progress Screen > Website Tab > Resource Center or you can simply bookmark https://resourcecenter.erosupport.com on your desktop.
