IRS filing deadline update

The IRS MeF system is now processing returns, and the filing deadline has been extended to 11:59 PM on Wednesday, April 18, 2018. For the latest details, see UltraTax CS alerts and notices.

By default, UltraTax CS automatically skips certain input screen and statement fields based on the presence of data in other related fields. Called "smart data entry," this feature helps to expedite data entry by allowing you to automatically bypass fields in which data entry is not required.

Examples:

If you do not want the cursor to skip fields with data displayed in blue, follow these steps.

  1. From the Setup menu, choose User Preferences.
  2. If it is not already marked, mark the Visit All Fields checkbox in the Data Entry tab.
  3. Click OK.

Tip: While in tax data entry, you can click the right mouse button and select Visit All Fields to quickly stop the cursor from skipping these fields.
