Everybody loves Lacerte - see why
"I had used Lacerte before switching to what I thought was an inexpensive software. But, it cost me more in time and money. (With Lacerte) I have been able to do my returns in half the time it took me with the other software."Sheila Smith, Madison Wisconsin
"Excellent product, easy to use, and exceptional customer support! As a first time user, I was impressed with how easy it was to learn the most effective way to use the software. I highly recommend Lacerte."Brown Welch McAllister
"I have looked at other programs, but none of them could measure up to what Lacerte can do. The simplicity of use, the way it ties everything together and the support that is available is fantastic. I would not use any other software as long as Lacerte is available."Taxer
