Online vs Desktop Tax Software

Your tax office will be faced with the decision of whether to go with online preparation software or a hard installed desktop version.  To make an educated decision, here are a few of the aspects to consider about each.

Online tax software offers freedom to file returns from anywhere with in internet connection, and allows your tax prep business the ability to support preparers servicing clients in different physical locations.  You can also view your office information from any PC.  If you do not have access to a high speed internet connection or your service is temporarily down, Your are out of business.

Desktop Software allows you can prepare returns without having internet access.  You are able to back up your own system.  You are in complete control of your tax program and records.  More years of development are behind desktop software and tend to lend to a more reliable and bug free product.  For more details see: Tax Prep Business Software Decisions.
