TaxSlayer activated Practice Lab 2018 this morning. When you open Practice Lab, it defaults to tax year 2018 — so if you didn’t notice the “2018” in the upper left, you might think that all your practice returns disappeared. Not at all….you just need to switch the year to 2017. To toggle between Tax Years 2017 and 2018, click on the words “Change Tax Year” in the upper right of the screen, next to Logout.
Please note that the software is not yet fully functional so any ongoing training should continue with Practice Lab 2017. State software is not yet available.and the new Form 1040 and accompanying schedules have not been approved by the IRS so do not yet display or print correctly.
