Intuit announced in September the release of QuickBooks Desktop 2017. In this article, Charlie Russell of the Accountex Report provides a great overview of the newest features.
Intuit supports the most recent 3 year period so the release of 2017 signals that intuit will soon discontinue support for 2014 versions. Those using the Payroll feature will be most impacted when support for 2014 is discontinued as payroll updates, payroll tax calculations and direct deposits will no longer function properly. 2014 Users will have payroll capability through December 2016 and likely for a brief period thereafter (referred to as the sunset period); however, if you’re using the payroll feature you will want to begin considering an update soon.
