Roundup of tax software reviews
by AccountingWEB on
Are you disappointed with the tax software you've been using? Have you outgrown your program? Have your needs changed? For whatever reason, are you in the market for new tax software? Here's a small collection of tax software reviews from around the 'net – the results of these reviews might make your decision easier.
The list provided here shows the results of a survey of CPA Technology Advisor readers in December, 2010. Favorite programs are listed in order of reader preference.
This review includes side-by-side rankings as well as descriptive information about individual programs. Nine products are reviewed – these are the consumer products, ranging in price from $7.95 to $49.95. A comprehensive summary about the advantages of using online software is included.
Last September, The Journal of Accountancy joined forces with The Tax Adviser to survey AICPA members who prepared 2009 tax returns for a fee to determine which tax preparation software products were the most popular, what aspects of those products preparers liked, and what they disliked. Seventeen software products were surveyed, Drake and UltraTax CS got the highest marks.
The last time AccountingWEB offered a tax software review was in the fall of 2009. Fourteen products were analyzed to determine what features distinguish the programs from one another.
