2021 PPT Express Updates

Date: June 16, 2021

Program: PPT Express

Subject: PPT Express Update Version 23.3 - ESA Update

Dear TaxTime USA, Inc. Customer,

  • This update contains Personal Property Tax (PPT) Essential Services Assessment (ESA) update that will allow users to prepare, e-file and e-pay 2021 ESA returns.

  • Due to new IRS security rules PPT has incorporated Multi Factor Authentication (MFA). Please download the ESA Quick Start for more information on setting this up.

  • If you will be e-paying for your clients - Bank account and routing numbers will need to be entered in the ESA main screen. Proforma'd files will have this information filled in using last year's information. We recommend that you review this screen for accuracy - from the ESA main screen click on the E-Pay Banking button.

  • To update PPT using our Auto Update feature open the PPT Express Program and click “Yes” when asked to download and install the ESA update. If you have successfully downloaded and installed the ESA update version 23.3 through PPT Express’ auto update feature you do not need to run the update again. You may want to download the ESA Quick Start by clicking on the link below. If the update did not complete successfully using the auto update feature click on the link below to manually update PPT Express.

  • NOTE – All PPT Express customers should download and install this update even if they will not be filing any ESA returns. This update version 23.3 (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.
