Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on [[date]]. However, limited UltraTax CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline.

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

If you have elected to use the Practitioner PIN method for all clients but would like to use the Self-Select PIN method for a particular client, you may override this setting. To do so, follow these steps.

  1. Open the client's return in UltraTax CS.
  2. Click the Electronic Filing folder in the folders block.
  3. Click the PIN tab to open Screen PIN.
  4. Enter X in the Self-Select PIN field in the Other Personal Identification Number (PIN) Options section.
