Repair Tax Return Pick List - The only time you will need to go into this menu is if a Support Technician advises you to. If you ever receive a database error this is one area in the program where the problem can be resolved. In most cases if an error of that nature is received it is best to call Technical Support.

Remove a Business Return - Type in the EIN of the business return to remove the return from the program. If you select YES the tax return for this client will be completely removed from the data files.
NOTE: If you are using a Network you will be asked "Would you also like to remove the Return for XXX - XX - XXXX from the Network Backup". Generally, you should answer YES to this question.
Edit Detailed Business Client Letter - In this menu you can add, delete, or change the wording of the business client letter to better suit your needs. Once the letter is changed, the new letter will adjust for all of your clients. Do not change the wording in brackets as this information is pulled from the databases located in the program. If you change the client letter and are not satisfied with the results, you may set it back to the default letter, by selecting "Reset Detailed Client Letter to Default".
Edit Detailed K-1 Letter - Similar to the Business Client Letter, you can change the wording of the K-1 Letters to better suit your needs.

Print Beginning Balances on Schedule L - If you would like for beginning balances print on Schedule L (balance sheet), toggle this question to YES.

Re-pull Prior Year Business Returns - If you made changes to a prior year business return after pulling forward the return to the current tax program, you can use this option to re-pull the return. Note: If you re-pull the prior year return, any information that was entered in the current year return will be overwritten.
