New (tax) year, new help!

Fixed Assets and UltraTax CS 2023 help is now on Help and Support. We're still moving articles, but you can find most content for the 2023 tax year there. Continue using the Help & How-To Center for tax years 2022 and older.

From any activity-based input screen folder, click the Asset tab to open the asset module's Asset List window. This window displays the assets that have been entered (in the Asset Detail dialog) for the open client's selected business activity.

Note: The Asset tab is not available if you have chosen to enter summary asset information for the open client. Choose File > Client Properties > Advanced Properties > Enter Asset Detail tab and mark the Enter asset detail information checkbox to select detailed asset data entry.

Customizing the Asset List window

  • To delete an asset, highlight the asset in the Asset List window, and then click the Delete button. You will be prompted to confirm that you want to delete the asset.
