When the TaxSlayer Pro software is available to for download in late November or early December, the state programs and the business program will not be included. State programs are individually released when we receive final approval from each state. Unless pending legislation or late tax law changes by the state delay the ability to release a state program, updates will be released and available prior to the start of electronic filing. The business program is typically released the week prior to the start of electronic filing.
To download and install state programs and/or the business program, from the Main Menu of TaxSlayer Pro select:
- Download / Install Updates - In the Update Selection Menu, new updates are outlined in red.
- Single-click each update you wish to download and install, or click the Check All Needed check box at the lower left of the window.
- Click Download
Note: While there are separate tabs for Individual and Business, you don't need to select states in both tabs. Selecting a state in either tab will download both the individual and business updates.
When the updates process has finished, click Exit.
