For individuals who have used TaxSlayer Pro in previous years to prepare their client's tax returns, a prior year comparison of tax return data is automatically calculated and is available for viewing in the View Results menu. If you did not previously use TaxSlayer Pro, or if this is the first year doing a particular client's return, a prior year comparison can still be generated using the module in the program.
From the Main Menu of the Tax Return (Form 1040) select:
- Miscellaneous Forms
- Enter Prior Year(s) Data for Comparison
- Enter the information for the year you wish to compare.
Entering the information from the prior year's tax return will generate a prior year comparison that can be viewed and printed from the View Results menu.
