Personal Tax- Status indicators are available for use in Personal Tax to show whether a section is complete or in progress. When bringing data forward to the following tax year a warning message may appear suggesting that not all sections are complete and that the incomplete sections may not be brought forward.


This is for PM and PT users on how to bring forward data for PT clients.

1.Load client in PT in the latest year
2. Edit and Bring forward data
If some section data is missing
3. Go back to prior year
4. Edit and ‘Make data entry as complete’ and and mark all sections as complete (complete all button) , then run a Final Tax Comp
5. Then change back to current year and bring forward again

To mark sections as complete for client with a Practice management license, the user must have the privilege to select ‘Mark Data Entry Complete’, which maybe assigned via the staff maintenance section.
