Current Version (BK2006.10)
This version can create a Schedule D attachment file that can be imported into the better tax preparation programs. This way you don't have to print a Schedule D attachment and attach it to the tax return.
Basis Report: Added an option to exclude securities that had no basis on the
report end date. For many customers, this will save lots of paper.
There are some rare instances where the Basis Keeper can't designate file locations properly. This is a "Catch - 22." If the Basis Keeper aborts because the file locations are invalid, you can't use the Basis Keeper's Designate File Location routine to correct the problem.
We have created the File Location Utility, fl0110.exe (191kb), that can be downloaded, installed and run to solve this problem. Once you have run the File Location Utility, FileLoc.exe, and the Basis Keeper is finding the data in the right folders, you can delete FileLoc.exe.
