CCH SureTax

It is really well suited for accountants that simply prepare the returns and need accurate data. This makes the review process much quicker. If you do not have WorkStream connected it is tough to track the progress of a project. You have to check the reports daily to see if you have any work to do

Intuit has coined the term "Firm of the Future" and its products live up to that moniker. If you run a practice that is cloud based, paperless and makes use of cutting edge tools such as e-signatures, client portals, etc., then this product will be a good fit for you. If you are slow to change and want to use the traditional desktop computing environment and frequently print client draft returns for review, use wet signatures, etc. then this might not be the product for you. If you are already using some of Intuit's products and plan to implement more business clients into QuickBooks Online, I would say this product is a "must have".

Pros

CCH SureTax

  • The ability to eliminate errors is an excellent feature. The program auto populates the sales and use tax forms as well as validates addresses
  • This integrates with Microsoft Dynamics which allows you to run automated processes and track the progress on each project.
  • It also auto populates the sales tax forms and has error messages so you can be sure to have accurate data and not receive notices.

Proconnect Tax Online

  • Allows us to collect client's information via Intuit Link. It's easy for our clients to upload their information and ask us questions via Link.
  • Efiling is made easy. I can cross check the returns to make sure everything matches and then efile.
  • The Dashboard is great to see where the returns stand and when they have been accepted by the state and IRS.

Cons

CCH SureTax

  • The reporting system is really limited and hard to define useful reporting.
  • A really clunky system and not intuitive to use.
  • The error messages are really vague and you have to "guess" occasionally why the error is there.
Chantelle Chase | TrustRadius Reviewer

Proconnect Tax Online

  • Not very many software titles outside the Intuit family can be used to integrate with the product.
  • The UI is a bit dated looking.
  • Can get rather costly if larger volumes of returns are prepared.

The support is, excellent and Intuit overall provides good support. Their customer service representatives are friendly and always assist with issues when needed. There are multiple ways to contact the support team. I have not sued them though very much for technical tax issues and primarily the customer service team when needed.

I think ProConnect Tax Online is better than competitors. As I am new to my career, the only software I have used are ProConnect Tax Online, and Thomson Reuters Ultra Tax. I prefer cloud-based software, but I think Ultra Tax is easier software to learn on. It is easier to learn on because it is form based

Return on Investment

CCH SureTax

  • It has improved accuracy and in doing so has created a better client experience.
  • It has improved efficiency and allows for more accountants to enter data.
  • The training has helped the whole team learn the basics which makes it nice to have back up people if something happens.
Chantelle Chase | TrustRadius Reviewer

Proconnect Tax Online

  • For 2018 taxes, it has had zero positive impact: we spent funds for software that will not produce the same forms that it has produced in the past. Therefore, it negatively effects our income tax preparation for 2018, leaving us to prepare needed forms outside of the software or purchase from a different company.
