W2 Pro Professional Edition

Editors' Review Staff Oct 8, 2009

W2 Pro Professional Edition promises to simplify the complicated task of managing employee tax paperwork. With a helpful Wizard and surprising extras, it does just that.

We instantly loved the interface's excellent setup Wizard, which provides definitions for complex questions and makes the entire process of managing W-2 forms easy enough for users with no accounting experience. You can set up your company's information in a matter of minutes by filling in a few fields. Adding employees to your roster and filling in their information is just as easy, especially since a virtual W-2 form lets you fill in the blanks like a hard-copy document. Printing off the paperwork is a cinch. We especially appreciated the ability to change an employee's filing status with ease. While we were happy with W2 Pro's functionality and simplicity, we were just as impressed by its added features. It includes about a dozen other tax forms, which were just as easy as the W2s to fill out and print. A Wizard walks you through the online filing process, which removes all need for paper copies. At every step we felt comfortable organizing these tax forms and were constantly impressed with its features. We can see users of all skill levels making good use of this program.

The free trial version of W2 Pro Professional Edition has some limitations, such as leaving a watermark on forms. It installs desktop icons without permission and leaves folders behind after uninstalling. Its helpful Wizard and excellent extras earn our recommendation.
