TaxGeek07.04 is out. It fixes the following issues with TaxGeek07.03:
1) The ever-annoying Schedule D has been patched so that it passes values from lines 18 and 19 to the Form 1040 global variables needed for Schedule D tax calculations. Also, the form will now print whether or not you have short or longterm gains/losses. 2) The installer now more correctly detects PDF::Reuse (presuming that perl is installed). TaxGeek07.04 will now do limited validation of SSNs in most forms. This feature was introduced because most users want to type in SSNs with dashes. This feature allows them to do so, but will still represent the entered numbers without dashes or spaces.Users of Schedule D should consider an upgrade or at least check their results to ensure that if the Schedule D Tax Worksheet was used, the calculated tax is correct.
tg07.03.patch2 is out. It fixes the following issues with the TaxGeek07.03
The following fixes were made in tg07.03.patch2 a) The Schedule D carry over worksheet has been relinked to Schedule D after a regression error (function rename) broke the form. b) The yeardata.js and 1040.htm have been updated so that special exceptions in standard deductions are accounted for in 2007. It also includes all the fixes made in patch 1. If you are a new user, please download TaxGeek07.03 and install it, download patch2 and run patch.sh to correctly apply it.
tg07.03.patch1 is out. It fixes the following issues with the TaxGeek07.03 release:
This is the first patch for TaxGeek07.03 The following fixes have been made: a) On 1040: SSN tooltip to inform users not to enter spaces or dashes in the SSN boxes (even if they can). b) *Additional* notifications on W2 that using an SSN that does not exactly match one of those on 1040 will result in income from that form not being counted. c) On 1040: when overrides for lines 21, 36, or 63 are used, the user can also override the text (or lack thereof) that appears on the line. d) dataIO.js: On some people's first starts, they have reported problems creating new projects. This has (we think) been fixed by ensuring that no newline character is at the end of the name of the current project. e) Schedule A: Line 25 now reads in Line 38 from 1040 automatically. f) Schedule D: Lines 1 and 8 now correctly print to PDF. This was caused by some variable name changes late in the game without updating the variable names in the coordinate files. Additionally, Schedule D will now automatically read in the names and SSN from 1040 and place them at the top of the form. g) Schedule E: Line 2, naming problems for the checkboxes in the coordinate files resulted in problems displaying X's on the output PDFs. The issue with properly testing for PDF::Reuse on Ubuntu will be addressed in the TaxGeek07.04 release shortly. Thanks to sonshinesoft, lewis7, crumley, and nam1 for all their input.
