TAX/PACK 1040 Federal & State Personal Return
TAX/PACK Professional 1040 features more than 80 supporting forms and schedules, collated batch printing, automatic SE calculations, year-to-year asset tracking, K-1 data entry and more.
Optional TAX/PACK state modules include part-year and non-resident forms, together with applicable payment vouchers and penalty forms. When using TAX/PACK Professional 1040, Federal information transfers automatically to the state modules; information is entered only once. Batch printing bundles a return's Federal and state forms as a single print job.
TAX/PACK Professional 1040 provides year-to-year client data transfers, client proformas and billing. The Client Manager is a database-driven program that allows client listings, mailing labels and Rolodex cards under many different sorting and filtering options.
We recommend the use of a Hewlett-Packard compatible laser printer and Alpine's optional laser forms software for the highest quality output. Alternatively, TAX/PACK Professional will generate IRS-acceptable federal forms or print on plain paper for use with Nelco overlays. Please note that (a) an increasing number of states are requiring the use of laser printers, especially when bar-coding is present, and (b) the range of available overlays is shrinking. Consult with an Alpine Data sales representative is you are considering printing options other than laser.
TAX/PACK Professional 1040 integrates with Nelco's DIRECTRONIC filing software. This combination provides electronic filing of tax returns with optional Refund Anticipation Loans. Use Nelco as a third-party transmitter, or transmit directly to the Internal Revenue Service.
