Downloading and Installing Updates
TaxSlayer Pro will download configured updates automatically every day when the program is started. To manually update federal and state programs, from the Quick Menu select:
- Download/Install Updates - Select the updates that are highlighted in red that you wish to install, then click Download.
Note the following in an office using TaxSlayer Pro on more than one PC in a networked environment:
- Tax year 2020 and forward - Workstation PCs need to follow the above procedure.
- Tax year 2019 and prior - Workstation PCs need to select Updates, and any updates available on the File Server PC will install. Thus, it's important to keep the file server PC updated and update it first before updating the workstation(s).
