Today, Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) announced a wide variety of new features, updates and enhancements to its cloud-based professional tax preparation software Intuit® ProConnect™ Tax Online for Tax Year 2019. The software enhancements include behind-the-scenes upgrades, new forms and e-file capabilities.
Last year, tax reform was top of mind for tax professionals who were focused on helping clients navigate tax reform for the first time. Since then, Intuit has been making key improvements to ProConnect Tax Online to ensure continued, strong support for updated tax legislation and increased efficiency, productivity and peace of mind for tax professionals at both small and large firms.
