What CPAs need to know about their tax software

Hosted by Chris Baysden

For tax professionals who prepare tax returns, their tax prep software is in many ways the most important tool that they have: They literally cannot do their jobs without it. Every year, The Tax Adviser conducts a tax software survey that readers have come to rely on to help them choose what software to use and keep up with changes in the industry. In this episode, The Tax Adviser Editor-In-Chief Alistair Nevius explains what we can learn from this year’s survey.  (Editor’s note: Click here to see results from the 2017 tax software survey.)
