Jaws with turbotax and quicken


Van Lant, Robin
 

My Blind Spot was working with Intuit on Quickbooks accessibility.  Also,  On the AIRA podcast I heard that Quickbooks is providing free AIRA access to small business owners who need help when using Quickbooks.   I used Quicken for years, but, after a computer crash, I just didn’t get back into it. I’m tracking my husbands minimal business expenses and our deductible expenses on Excel.  Not glamorous, but functional for now.  I keep meaning to try Money Talks, but just havent’ done it yet.

George,

 

With regard Quicken or Quickbooks. I thought I heard that Intuit was developing Quicken with some accessibility built into the quicken program. Perhaps calling their office in Mountain View, California could settle that question.

I am ready to do my 2018 taxes and want to use the cd of Turbotax 2018 Home and Business.  Is it workable with Jaws 2019?  I’d like to know this before buying the program.  Also I have heard that quicken and quick books have not been accessible with Jaws in the past...is this still true?   Finally can anyone on the list tell about a simple program that works with Jaws to sort expenses for tax time.  I used to use Home Management software, but that company no longer offers product.  I could sort expenses into categories like

1.  real estate taxes

2.  electric

3.  Professional expenses

 

etc.  Thanks for any help!

Regards,

George

True,
 
online versions of most tax filing applications are accessible, but I prefer using one strictly on my PC, and not via the web.

I have used Turbo Tax online for the last few years. It seemed to work pretty good. It's the only one I know of that can pull in the W2 from ADP directly, since the PDF file is a nightmare to try to read with JFW, at least the way my company does it. When one can have it automatically import, it's pretty easy to do. I don't know about the CD version as I never used it.

Hello,

 

I abandoned TurboTax several years ago due to accessibility issues.

 

I currently use tax Act

 

www.taxact.com

 

Tax Act isn’t perfect but it’s been useable.

 

Kind regards,

Yes, agree with Amanda. Have been using Taxacts since 2004 and as long as you stick with the step-by-step guidance feature, you can very easily understand what you are entering, and go back as often as you like to check your work or edit entries.
 
Beware of the quick entry method they offer...that is a forms-base entry method that absolutely does not work with JAWS. That is more like Turbo Tax presentation.
 
So go for Taxacts. It is 99% accessible. That 1% I ran into this year when trying to enter the selling price of my capital gains property sale. The clever folks at Taxacts decided that there was one place where only quick entry was offered, and I raised h**l  about it to their development team to put back the step-by-step in that place. They said they would feed that back to the team for next year...fingers crossed.
 
But again have been doing my taxes since 2004 with Taxacts and JAWS. And BTW you don't need to have any JAWS scripts to make it work. It works out of the box.
