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.


What is the purpose of the closing document?


Mailing the closing document, along with Form 706, facilitates the processing of the estate tax return. To prevent the closing document from printing, choose Setup > 706 Estate Tax, and click the Tax Return button. Change the print condition for the closing document to Never. This change applies to all returns.

Note: UltraTax CS only generates the closing document; the IRS will produce the amounts for the closing document.
