New Updates and Features for the 2016 Tax Season


We spent a lot of time in the off-season making enhancements to the site, hoping to provide our customers with the best filing experience possible.  2016 forms were made available on November 1, 2016 but we’re not done making improvements. So if you see something that’s not quite right, rest assured we’re already working to fix it.


Here is a list of changes you will see this season:

  1. Improved experience in the Upload Center
  2. Direct-to-State filings - For 1099-MISC: OR and RI - For W-2: MI, IL, GA
  3. Enhanced importing process making bulk-file uploads faster
  4. Single sign-on with Intuit QuickBooks Plus Online Account
  5. Integration with Xero accounting - you can now import 1099-MISC data
  6. Increased password security requirements
  7. Unlock account without customer service assistance
  8. E-delivery clarification on recipient set-up screen
