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.


How many years of returns does the Department of Labor (DOL) support for electronic filing?


There is no cut-off for electronic filing capabilities for prior-year returns. The DOL will accept the current year and the three prior-year plans on their respective forms. For returns four years old and prior, they must be filed on the current form. For example, 2014 plans can be filed in the 2014 version of UltraTax CS. However, 2013 plans must be filed using 2017 UltraTax CS or the IFILE system. For more information, see the DOL's Frequently Asked Questions, Q4 at http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/faqs/faq-EFAST2.html.
