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.

Use the Page Setup Defaults dialog to specify default values that flow to the File > Page Setup dialog when you create a new report, financial statement, or letter.

Note: You do not need to have a report open in the Report Designer to specify default values for reports.

In the Report Designer, choose Edit > Page Setup Defaults.
