PLANO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq:INTU), maker of Intuit
Tax Online
®, ProSeries® and Lacerte®, the nation’s leading tax
software for tax professionals, launched Understanding
the Affordable Care Act,
a free online resource to help tax
professionals understand and prepare for the tax implications brought
about by health care reform. This comprehensive guide was created in
response to a recent poll by Intuit, which revealed that less than 7
percent of tax preparers feel “very prepared” to handle tax changes
related to the Affordable Care Act.

“After speaking with dozens of tax preparers, it became clear to us that
professionals will bear much of the burden when it comes to educating
tax filers on how the reform might affect their taxes during this
upcoming tax season,” said CeCe Morken, General Manager of Intuit’s Professional
Tax
Group. “We hope that with the help of this resource, every tax
professional in America will feel confident and prepared to effectively
communicate the tax implications of the ACA to their clients.”

In addition to outlining the key implications of the ACA on taxes, the
guide includes both checklists for tax professionals as well as a
consumer guide for individual taxpayers and small business owners,
helping to address:

  • How the ACA affects individual tax situations
  • Which new forms taxpayers need to look for
  • Documentation that tax professionals need in order to complete 2014
    tax returns

The release of Understanding
the Affordable Care Act
comes on the heels of Intuit’s Tax Year
2014 Impact of the Affordable Care Act
, a series of educational
seminars and webinars for tax professionals across the country.
