TurboTax Business for Texas 2012 now handles franchise reports for 2008-2013
The Texas franchise tax is a privilege tax imposed on corporations and limited liability companies that are chartered (or conduct business) in Texas.
Our 2012 TurboTax Business for Texas tax products now support franchise reports for tax years 2008 through 2013, in accordance with Texas Comptroller's Office requirements.
Per those requirements, you must use the tax year 2012 version to prepare reports for tax years 2008 through 2012, if you haven't already filed them. On the other hand, if you need to amend reports for those tax years, you should use the appropriate prior-year version.
Please note that you'll need to use forms mode to prepare 2008–2012 franchise reports in the tax year 2012 version. You can either use the step-by-step interview mode or forms mode to prepare the current-year (2013) franchise report.
