Web-based Client Organizer
Within secure, private client portals, your clients can access and complete their organizers online 24/7. And you can import their data directly into UltraTax CS without re-keying.
Faster Tax Processing with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Technology
Integration with FileCabinet CS and the Source Document Processing service enables you to achieve more efficient tax processing. Through OCR, you can assign source data entry tasks to non-professional administrators. The Source Document Processing service pulls in data directly from scanned client source documents and shares it seamlessly with the client's UltraTax CS tax return.
Use up to four monitors with independent views for greater flexibility. For example, you can view prior-year data at the same time as current-year data, tile windows in many combinations, automatically synchronize prior-year data and tax forms with input screen, show clients their tax forms on a separate, additional client-facing monitor, and more.

To speed tax processing even more, UltraTax CS includes a Tax Projection Worksheet, a six-year client analysis/history graphical overview, a Client Complexity factor automatically calculated by the system, and robust e-file tools to monitor each step of the e-file process, even sending the client an automatic email when an e-file return is accepted by the IRS.
Depending on your Checkpoint subscription, you can link directly from any input screen or line item on a form in UltraTax CS to targeted explanations, guidance, analysis, and practice aids using PPC Deskbooks™, RIA Research on Checkpoint, and Quickfinder (CD). The Form/Line Finder feature automatically directs you from the field where you are in the tax return to the appropriate area in Checkpoint to support your research needs.
Tax Subject Index
When you need to enter specific types of data but are unsure of where to enter it, you can access the Tax Subject Index for a list of tax subjects or forms. From this list, you simply type in the category of data you want to enter. UltraTax CS then takes you instantly to the appropriate input screen. You can also access government tax form instructions with a single click when connected to the Internet.
Diagnostics in UltraTax CS ensure that you don't overlook any detail. For example, you can monitor selected values while entering data or in review, and UltraTax CS automatically calculates these values for you.
