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 Assign Codes dialog to assign Account Classification, M-3 codes, Tax codes, or Units) to multiple accounts at the same time in the Chart of Accounts screen or the Enter Trial Balance screen.

When transferring data to a tax application, a unit can be used to designate the input screen location for multiple-unit entities. For example, if you are transferring utilities expenses for a farm to the UltraTax CS Farm input screen and the tax code for the first unit's utilities is 632 and the unit is 1, you would transfer the second unit's utilities with a tax code of 632 and unit of 2. Tax code units should not be assigned to tax codes 88888 or 99999.
  1. From the Setup > Chart of Accounts or Actions > Enter Trial Balance screen choose Edit > Edit Multiple Accounts.
  2. In the Edit Multiple Accounts dialog, select Assign Codes from the Information to edit field and click Enter.
