1981 Tax Preparer

The 1981 Edition of the "TAX PREPARER by HowardSoft" is now available for Apple Computers. The new edition has several improvements over the acclaimed 1980 version, including continuous-stream printing for professional tax preparers, printouts that can be filed directly with the IRS, expanded documentation in a quality notebook, and the addition of Form 2210 to the long list of built-in forms (Schedules A, B, C, D, E, F, G, R&RP, SE, TC, and Forms 1040, 2106, 3468, 4562, 472, 4797, 5695).

Unique features include on­screen facsimiles of IRS forms during preparation, easy creation, filing, and editing of itemized lists to support any entry, automatic computing of all arithmetic, automatic linking of results of various forms, and easy comparison of alternative tax strategies. More complete and easy-to-use than packages costing many times more, this package comes with two disks and professional documentation, and sells for $99 at dealers everywhere. (Requires Apple Computers with 48K, Applesoft ROM, and at least one disk drive.) HOWARD SOFTWARE SERVICES, 7722 Hosford Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90045, (213) 645-4069.
