Still using Windows® 7? It's time to upgrade!

Microsoft stopped offering mainstream support for Windows® 7 in January 2015. That's over two years ago! Although they still offer extended support, it’s clearly not Microsoft's focus anymore. Consider this: over 98% of the affected Windows systems hit by the WannaCrypt/WannaCry ransomware attacks were Windows® 7 systems, whilst Windows® 10 accounted for just 0.03 percent.

Although TaxCycle and Doxcycle still run under Windows® 7, we strongly encourage you to start thinking about upgrading. Our support for this operating system will be available up until after the 2018 T2 filing season.
