How do I roll forward returns to the next year in CCH Axcess™ Tax?
In CCH Axcess, multiple tax returns can be rolled forward at the same time using Batch Manager or can be rolled forward one at a time using Return Manager.
If your firm uses tax return templates when creating new returns and you have not rolled forward these templates to the same year that you need to roll returns forward to, you will want to roll the templates forward before rolling forward returns. This will ensure that template data is applied to the returns when they are created. Click to find out how to roll forward return templates.
