  2. On the left, expand Return Preparation and click on Edit.

  4. Uncheck Use timer  to hide the timer removes it from the bottom of the TaxCycle window and prevent the time from being added to the Billing worksheet. TaxCycle still keeps track of the edit time for the file, so you will still see it in the file information. If you hide the timer for while and then show it again, TaxCycle will still have the edit time from the period in which the option was off.
  5. Check Automatically pause the timer when working in another program to pause the timer if you move to work on another program. This allows you to limit the time tracked to only the time you work on the TaxCycle file. Leave this unchecked if you want to track the time you use in other programs, like email or working papers software. 
  6. To associate the time with an hourly amount, set your Price and Invoice options
