Explore powerful, new features in your ProConnect software
Missing data flags added: By flagging missing data fields, you can better identify gaps prior to filing. As a result of streamlining this process, missing data will be collected more quickly and efficiently, creating faster review times.
K-1 Package: Pass-through business entities now have an easier way to produce letters, K-1 forms, K-1 state forms, and more for each partner or shareholder, all in one package. Easily generate PDFs from the File Return screen and send them out.
Microsoft Excel-based imports added: We’ve extended the functionality to include depreciation and pass-through entity members.
Masking and watermarking: ProConnect can mask Social Security numbers for you when you print forms or create PDFs. You now have the ability to also add a watermark that reads “Do not file” to distinguish what’s for review or storage and what’s for filing, minimizing confusion.
E-filing individual amended returns, Form 1040X: You now have the ability to transfer originally-filed ProConnect data to amended returns to help save you time, a feature particularly useful with an ever-changing tax landscape. ProConnect will also make a copy of the original return for your records.
Enhancements to Link*—the client portal integrated into ProConnect
Improved accuracy in Link document imports: We’ve improved the accuracy of automated data entry from the following documents uploaded through Link: W2, 1099-INT, 1099-R, 1098-T, 1098, 1099-B, 1099-DIV, 1099-G, and 1099-MISC.
When you import a form, you will automatically be taken to the relevant area in the tax return.
All-new Link experience: You can now send request templates to multiple clients at once.
For added ease of use, the Document Import Drawer lets you view all documents ready for import in one organized section with on-screen alerts to notify you when documents are ready to import.
The Link experience has improved for your clients, too. They can upload their documents in batches and our system will automatically identify the form type. They can also import all their documents directly from their financial institutions straight into Link. Finally, the client sign-on experience has improved as well.
