TaxCycle includes a timer that tracks the time you work on each tax return and then bill clients on a time basis.
It's at the bottom of the TaxCycle window. The timer logs the active working time for each return, tracking each the time spent on each taxpayer's return separately.
- Click on the timer to pause it. It turns red. Click on it again to restart the timer.
- If you click away to work on a different file or program, the timer automatically pauses. It only ever counts time on the return that is in focus.
- The total edit time for each taxpayer appears in the file information (click on the File menu, then on Info).
