Dear TaxTime USA, Inc. Customer,

  • This update now allows users to print Form 5277 - Affidavit to Rescind Eligible Manufacturing Personal Property Exemption. This form is available by going to the 5278 tab and checking the box “Request to Rescind 5278”. This form will then be available to print from the Print screen (it does not Print Preview).

  • This update also has a new last line on the Comparison Summary Report when the True Cash Value (TCV) is under 180,000 and therefore the tax is zero. The new line is labeled “5076 tax” and only show when it is applicable.

  • Our 2024 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 allowed for Auto Update you can check to make sure you are now using Version 26.2 by clicking on Help and then About.

    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.
