What works

Update to previous test data: Printing now works after installation of Courier New font from (download the courie32.exe and execute it under wine).

I also added (paid for) the California state software; it installs and runs correctly.

TaxAct's automatic updates also work correctly (it does ask before installing).

What does not

There are some minor cosmetic problems in that some check boxes are not shown checked or filled in when viewing the tax form.


What was not tested

Deluxe Edition, states other than California.

HowTo / Notes

Upgrade Wine
A user with wine-0.9.30 reports that direct printing now works.  You may be able to upgrade wine instead of upgrading to deluxe to use the PDF work around for printing.
