Program: PPT Express
Subject: PPT Express Update Version 23.4
Dear TaxTime USA, Inc. Customer,
- This update now allows for User Names to be added to an existing or new preparer for multi-factor verification purposes when e-filing ESA returns.
- Our 2021 software 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 23.4 by clicking on Help and then About; if that is your version you do not need to re-download.
- NOTE – All PPT Express customers should download and install this update even if they will not be filing any ESA returns. This update version 23.4 (and possibly any further 2021 updates) will be required to be installed in order to proforma when next year’s PPT Express 2022 is released.
- This update contains all prior updates including ESA Update 23.3.
