Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

Application changes

We have updated Form 1096 to address an issue that prevented the application from printing the corrected data at the bottom of the form during the two-step correction process.

Note: If your firm has modified the predefined version of Form 1096, the application will not overwrite your existing layout with an updated version.  If this is the case, you will need to restore the latest predefined version using the Layout Designer. To do this, select the layout from the Layouts list pane in the Layout Designer, and then choose File > Restore Default.

Payroll form and filing information

The Payroll Form and Filing Information portlet on the Home or Firm dashboard provides valuable information for federal, state, and certain local tax agents. Click the U.S. flag (for federal information) and the map (for state and local information) to view detailed information in the tabbed pages in the lower section of the portlet. For information on working with portlets,  see Dashboard portlet: Payroll Form and Filing Information.
