Import to Existing Plan dialog

Alerts and notices

The Import to Existing Plan dialog opens as part of the process of importing client data from UltraTax/1040. Use this dialog to choose a destination plan to which the UltraTax/1040 client information should be imported.

Note: You cannot import data to an existing plan if it is an S Corp Comparison plan, a TCJA Comparison plan, an Annualized Plan, or a Family Plan, or if the import year precedes the first plan year. If you attempt to import data to one of these plan types, an explanation in blue text displays on the dialog.
