Tax Slayer Issues and Questions – Update

Over the two months since Practice Lab was released, there has been a single Point of Contact appointed for most US States. Our POC for NY State is Mark Wovsaniker. Each POC is responsible to capture any issues or questions that are identified with how TaxSlayer does or does not handle the state tax return and to keep TaxSlayer apprised of those issues. In parallel, there is a master list of federal issues and concerns that Mike Winter, NTTC and TaxSlayer Transition Team member, is following and reporting to TaxSlayer. To avoid duplication please forward both state and federal federal issues and questions via Sheryl Campbell our NY3 Training Specialist
