Tax software (CrossLink, ProSeries, TaxSlayer, Drake, TaxWise)

By The Income Tax School | May 5, 2010
I am often asked by other independent tax business owners what tax preparation software do I use.  We are currently using TaxWise and it meets our needs for both routine individual returns (1040 series) including all states and e-file, as well as non-individual business returns (1120, 1065, etc.).  We had a bad experience when we switched from TaxWise to another vendor and we switched back mid-season because most of our people were familiar with TaxWise.  However, we know there are other very good options, including some that are family-owned, like TaxWise was before CCH bought them. What software do you use & what has been your experience with it?
