Getting Started

  • Install the 2013 CCH ProSystem fx Tax software (v 2013.0400 or later). Be sure to install any tax product (1040, 1120) to be converted.
  • The conversion process requires the creation of at least one Office Group in CCH ProSystem fx Tax. Create an Office Group by clicking the Office Manager icon in CCH ProSystem fx Tax.
  • Click here to download and install the Conversion Program.
  • The installation will place an icon on your desktop to access the Conversion Program. It can also be found in the Windows® Start Menu >Programs>ProSystem fx Client Data Conversions.

Conversion Overview

  • After the conversion process is complete, you can open the converted returns in 2013 Tax Preparation and complete or modify the returns.
  • Prior year tax returns converted using the Same Year method are available in the tax software immediately after conversion.
  • Prior year tax returns converted using the Pro Forma method should not be viewed and cannot be calculated or changed in the conversion year tax program. They must be rolled forward to the next tax year before they are available for modification. Much of the converted data will not be visible until the return is rolled forward.
