Why is my County Assessor file not reflecting the most recent Assessor information?
The annual update includes updates to the County Assessor information as published on the California State Board of Equalization website just prior to the program release data.
However we do not automatically install the updated Assessor file in order to protect any customizations you may have made to it.
To overwrite your current County Assessor file with the one current to the date above follow these easy steps:
1. Click Help - About on the tool bar in the application.
2. Note the Program Path.
3. Close the application and make sure no one else has the application open.
4. Delete these two files from the Program Path: County.dbf and County.cdx.
5. Enter the application again. The County database files will be restored from the information stored within the application.
Why am I not able to print prior year forms earlier than 2010 any longer?
The Tax forms changed significantly between the 2009 and the 2010 version (2008 and 2009 tax years). It is because of these changes that we can no longer offer the capability of printing prior year forms prior to 2010 (tax year 2009).
We recommend that you keep full backups of your data and the corresponding Forms571 program for each year. In order to print 2009 forms you will have to load out the 2009 version of Forms571
