Lacerte Tax 2017 System Recommendations

(Including Add-Ons: Tax Planner, Tax Analyzer and eOrganizer)

Keep your system updated and achieve more productivity during tax season


Don't lose speed and productivity during tax season. Make sure your Intuit ProConnect Lacerte software runs optimally and ensure compliance by checking your system against our system recommendations below. Upgrading will keep you from having unnecessary slowdowns, hassles and a less-than-optimal experience. More importantly, it will allow for further productivity during the busy tax season.



Recommended system requirements for enhanced performance



Windows 10, Windows 8 or Windows 7:

Please check to see if your computer's memory meets our system recommendations.


Attention Windows XP Users:

In line with Microsoft's recent decision to discontinue support of Windows XP, Intuit ProConnect also stopped supporting this operating system upon the release of our TY14 tax program, which means you will not be able to install it in a Windows XP environment. You will want to upgrade your operating system to Windows 7 or higher in order to continue running your Intuit ProConnect software.
