Summer renewal incentives expire August 31st!
Time is almost up for CFS summer renewal incentives! Renew by August 31st to earn a $5 voucher for each program renewed, plus a 10% discount on any program you've never ordered before. Click here to log in to your MyCFS account and renew online.
Now is also a good time to order your forms, blank perforated stock, envelopes, and other supplies. Receive a 15% discount on all supplies ordered by August 31st. Use the following links to order your forms and envelopes or tax return supplies from our online store.
Do you have a MyCFS account?
If so, when was the last time you used it? It’s easy to set up a new MyCFS account or update an old one. Go to TaxTools.com and click MyCFS on the green menu bar, or click here. If you don’t have an account, click the Register button. If you do have an account, use your e-mail address and password to log in. If you can’t remember your password, there’s a link for that.
Once you've logged in, your account information will be displayed. Make sure your Customer Info is correct, and that your account is linked to your Customer ID. You can make changes to your Customer Info by clicking Firm Name/Address/Email Change under Quick Links.
If you need help, call customer service and we’ll give you a hand. Remember—your MyCFS account is the easiest way to order software and supplies and keep track of your account information, license codes, vouchers, and more!
Have you renewed W2/1099?
W2/1099 Payroll System should be available for download next month. If you haven't already done so, be sure to renew by August 31st to take advantage of our summer early renewal incentives; customers who renew by August 31st earn a $5 voucher to apply to next year's order and can take 10% off any first-time software purchase.
Customers often ask us why we don't release W2/1099 in January, when other Payroll System programs are released. There are several reasons for this:
- The IRS has been known to post form specifications for some information returns as late as April; revisions have been posted even later than that due to late legislation (which is why we also wait until summer to print and ship our red forms);
- Once programmed, forms generated by our software must undergo an approval process before the software can be released; and
- In any case, the software is not needed until December or January.
Payroll Return Corrector Special
In case you haven't heard the news, this year we moved the release date of Payroll Return Corrector to January (see April e-news). Because of this, for a limited time only, we are offering the following 2-for-1 special: purchase both Corrector 2012 and Corrector 2013 for just $49—the regular price of one year! This offer is not available at our online store, so call us at 1-800-343-1157 to order both years of Corrector for the price of one—or if you have already purchased Corrector 2012 or 2013 for the $39 renewal price and would like to purchase the additional year for $10.
Be sure to see the complete list of 2-for-1 specials at the bottom of the page!
Tax Planning in Uncertain Times
We still don't know if and when Congress will pass legislation to extend the AMT patch and Bush tax cuts. However, we have made it easier for you to predict the effect on your clients—whether or not the provisions are extended. We have added checkboxes to the Federal/State Tax Planner in TaxTools 2012, so that you can easily run "what if"
scenarios—both with and without the AMT and tax cut provisions. We have also updated W4 Calculator with an option to allow users to apply the 2011 AMT patch for 2012 calculations.
If you have TaxTools 2012 or W4 Calculator 2012, make sure you have updated to the latest version so that you can make use of these features. Use the "Update from the Web" option within the program, or download the update manually at our downloads page.
Remember—if you have a dedicated high-speed Internet connection such as DSL or cable, you can configure most CFS programs to automatically check for updates each time you run the program. Click "Configuration" on the toolbar, and check the box next to "Check for web updates when program starts."
If you don't have TaxTools or W4 Calculator, both of these programs are currently available as 2-for-1 Specials. See the complete list below!
