  • v13.00 (1/29/2016) - Initial release for 2015 tax-year. Contains US-Fed-1040, with Schedules A, B, C, and D. Handles US Fed form 8949 forms for capital gains/losses. (The Schedules A, B, D, and Forms 6251 & 8949 answers are all produced automatically from the Fed 1040 program, so there are not separate programs for those.) Also includes State Tax versions for Virginia, Ohio, New Jersey, California, North Carolina, Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania. This release also contains a new Auto-Fillout option. Saves time by filling out numbers onto the actual government PDF tax-forms. For enhanced security you enter your name, address, Soc-Sec number, and mark the check-mark items directly in your PDF viewer. Auto-Fillout Forms is presently supported for the US-1040 and three States only at this time. (Other states are not yet supported for auto-fillout.) If Auto-Fillout is supported, you will see the Auto-Fillout option when you click Print. Not all PDF viewers are supported, but it seems to work OK with several of the major viewers. Next to the Auto-Fillout button is a button to select or change your favorite PDF-Viewer.
