    Hi Everyone,

    I am planning to start a tax preparation business to work on the side of my corporate 9 to 5. What is the best tax preparation software out there for a small business/start up? Any recommendations on resources for novices getting started or even what some seasoned pros refer to? I ordered the 2022 US Master Tax Guide (used at a great price) to start. Any other insights or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I think Lacerte is the best. The only other software that I have worked with is ProSeries, which did not seem as robust as Lacerte. Although Lacerte may seem not as “user-friendly” as ProSeries if you are just starting out…. You really have to know what you are doing when using Lacerte.

    I concur with Lacerte. Support is adequate and software is easy to learn and comprehensive. For a startup use their pay as you go. Factor in the software cost to your fees. Can get expensive but it is a passthrough expense. I have been using it for many years and it does everything I need for federal and state, individual, trusts and estates. I do not do business returns as I work solely for an estate planning law firm. Others will mention Drake which is more affordable and their support, I hear, is excellent. Have you started your application for your EFIN yet? You need to get that going now for the upcoming tax season. Applications take awhile.

    Experience was the worst part of the journey for me. You?
