General
The application now supports integration with the 32-bit version of Microsoft® Office 2016 applications.
Import of client data from QuickBooks® Pro
We have addressed an issue that, in certain circumstances, caused an error to occur during attempts to
import payroll checks.
Reports
We have addressed an issue that caused an error to occur during attempts to preview or print non-firm
type reports or financial statements that contained at least one firm variable in a header and/or footer
region.
General – Payroll
We have addressed the following issues with the payroll alerts and email notifications feature.
 In certain circumstances, the application sent email notifications in error.
 In certain circumstances, the application displayed incorrect payroll dates and schedule names in
email notifications.
 When data changes of any kind were made for an employee that had prior quarter wages, the
application displayed the pop-up alert that is specific to EIN/SSN changes being made to an
employee that has prior quarter wages.

Payroll form and filing information
The Payroll Form and Filing Information portlet on the Home or Firm dashboard provides the following
information: form approval status, form availability, available filing methods, form due dates, form filing
addresses, tax payment information (for all tax types), agency contact information, new hire reporting
information, payroll resources, and tax calendar (to view and print tax deposit due dates and form due
dates for all federal, state, and certain local tax agents). Click the applicable jurisdiction on the map to
display the federal, state, and local tax form information within the tabbed pages in the lower section of
