CHIPSOFT RELEASES FINAL VERSIONS OF PERSONAL TAX SOFTWARE FOR THE 1991 TAX YEAR

 CHIPSOFT RELEASES FINAL VERSIONS OF
 PERSONAL TAX SOFTWARE FOR THE 1991 TAX YEAR
 SAN DIEGO, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- ChipSoft, the No. 1 tax preparation software leader, is currently shipping the final versions of TurboTax for DOS, TurboTax for Windows, and MacInTax (for the Macintosh).
 TurboTax and MacInTax offer the only programs that truly support the first-time user with fully integrated help. New this year, the 1991 version offers a five-minute "Quick Tour" that introduces the user to the program, the menus, and tax help features. An "Interview" feature asks a series of questions to help you determine the forms and worksheets personally required. "Logical Next Step" (which can be turned on or off) suggests the next step in preparing tax returns.
 For the person who needs little or no assistance, TurboTax and MacInTax allow the user to go directly to the forms and worksheets where the user can immediately enter data.
 Every user will want "some help" and TurboTax and MacInTax have it all. "Consult" with TurboTax and MacInTax provides in-depth, context- sensitive tax information in layman's language. Complete IRS instructions are also provided and are line-sensitive.
 TurboTax guides the user through the entire return. The "Tax Window" (DOS program) or "Status Summary Worksheet" (Windows and MacInTax programs) let the user get a fullp?icture of his or her tax status as the user prepares his or her return. Specialized worksheets help the user handle depreciation, amortization and passive activities.
 And when the user has completed his or her input, the "Final Review" will check the tax return for omissions and inconsistencies; list all overrides and notes; make some tax savings suggestions; look for items that could motivate an IRS audit; and more. The user is now ready to print out IRS-approved forms on a dot-matrix or laser printer. The user just signs and mails.
 State versions, sold separately, are also available. TurboTax for DOS has 44 state packages, one for every state that has an income tax. Fifteen state packages are available for both the MacInTax and TurboTax for Windows programs.
 In 1990, more than 6 million returns were filed with ChipSoft products. ChipSoft is America's leading publisher of tax preparation software for both consumers and professional tax preparers. It is the only company to offer tax products on the three primary personal computer platforms: DOS, Macintosh and Windows.
