Program: MI Sales Tax Express 2019
Subject: Update Version 19.2
Dear TaxTime USA, Inc. Customer,
- This update fixes the configuration option that allows users to control if a watermark is printed on e-filed returns.
- This update also includes additional validation checks for e-filed returns.
- The State no longer allows W-2 to be attached to E-Filed Annual Returns. This update removes that feature.
- The State also does not want wage statements to be attached to paper mailed Annual Returns. Below is the link to the 2019 MI Sales/Use and Withholding Annual Return and instructions. Please refer to page 4-5 for additional information regarding Wage Statements and Reporting: https://www.michigan.gov/documents/taxes/5081_642079_7.pdf
- Our 2019 software now automatically checks for any updates when going into the program and if it finds any it will ask whether or not the update should be loaded. If you disabled auto update (this feature can be found in Setup/Configuration and then clicking on the General Tab; near the top right of the screen there is a check box: Always check for updates when going into program) then download the update following instructions below. If you allowed for Auto Update you can check to make sure you are now using Version 19.2 by clicking on Help and then About.
