ProSeries data conversion

We understand the importance of a smooth transition, starting with the hassle-free conversion of your existing client files into your new Intuit ProSeries tax software. The data conversion process will move selected items from your current tax software to ProSeries professional tax preparation software. It is not intended to convert all of your tax data, nor will it allow you to generate a tax return for the purposes of side-by-side comparison with last year's return.

What will be converted
  • All personal information (taxpayer, spouse, dependents, etc.)
  • Names for all interest, business, estates, partners, etc.
  • All important carryover amounts that can be obtained (varies based on previous software used)
  • Depreciation
What will not be converted
  • State data including state information like depreciation differences and tax refunds
  • Amounts that are not relevant to next-year tax preparation
  • Some unobtainable calculated carryover amounts
  • 706, 709, 990, or 5500 items

Please allow one business day for most converted files. We will begin offering tax year 2020 client data conversions with the first release of the ProSeriesTax for tax year 2021 software in November 2021.
