MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - May 16, 2007 - To help accountants do more in less time, Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) introduced a new trial balance utility for Lacerte tax software users. Intuit also announced it will host a series of one-day symposiums in June, providing training on everything from how to use Intuit solutions more efficiently to how to successfully market a practice.

The new Lacerte Trial Balance utility allows Lacerte tax software users to integrate virtually any trial balance data into the tax return. Using the utility, accountants can adjust journal entries or make tax-line assignments within the Lacerte tax software. The solution eliminates setup work and helps streamline time-consuming work during the busiest time of year for accountants. The new solution is available for $450 per license with an annual maintenance fee of $150.
