CS Tax & Asset Management Solutions November 27, 2013

Last year we were pleased to introduce the UltraTax CS Ideas Community, a forum for UltraTax CS customers to provide product feedback and suggestions to our development team and to view and comment on ideas submitted by other customers. The response to the UltraTax CS Ideas Community was very positive and helped Development provide you with new features and general enhancements.

Below are just some of the enhancements that we implemented after reviewing your helpful suggestions:

  • Ability to Open Clients In Multiple Years – For more info, refer to New Feature! Open Clients in Multiple Years of UltraTax CS.
  • More Robust Print Features, Including an Option to Switch Printer Selection from the Print Preview Screen – For more info, refer to Save Time with New Print Features in 2013 UltraTax CS.
  • Foreign Employer Compensation Record is Now a Calculating Form – The Foreign Employer Compensation (FEC) Record is a calculating form this year. A new screen, Screen FEC, is now located in the Income folder to facilitate ease of use in calculating this form. You will no longer need to enter FEC information on Screen Income. The FEC income will automatically be included in wages on Form 1040 line 7 and can also be linked to Form 2555 (via the 2555 allocation code on Screen FEC) and to Form 1116 (via the Foreign activity form & unit # fields on Screen 1116).
  • 1040 State E-Filing Attachments – In 2012 UltraTax CS, a non-resident state return had to be manually attached as a PDF to a client’s resident state return in order to substantiate the credit for tax paid to the resident state. 2013 UltraTax CS 1040 State products will automatically attach the non-resident state return as a PDF to the resident return, as long as the non-resident return has been added to the client and is calculating
