Release Notes: This revision updates the US-1040 AMT Part-III calculation section only.
Release Notes: A new GUI for OTS was posted for downloading. The new GUI is based on Gtk, which offers an improved look and feel. It is now set as the default user interface in the regular OTS distribution package for Linux and Microsoft users. The older GUI is still included in case there are any problems with the new one. A user feedback survey was added to the webpage. The updated tax programs for this year remain stable.
Release Notes: A fix was made for Line 27 of the US 1040 Qualified Dividends and Capital Gain Tax Worksheet in the US-1040 program. Additionally, some tool-tips, or hover-notes, were added in the OTS-GUI to provide hints about some of the button functions.
