Desktop Widget Version 2.2.1 is Here

Our Best Desktop Widget Version Ever!

widget iconSome of our subscribers live and breathe through the Zip2Tax Desktop Widget.  I know I do!  When it went down last Fall, the Zip2Tax Development Team decided to update it with all the improvements subscribers have asked for over the years.     

It took a bit longer than we thought.  

But it was worth the wait!

 

On December 1, 2018 we introduced our new and improved Desktop Widget version 2.2.0 to our subscribers.  Then, we tweaked it even more and put version 2.2.1 out there for download.


So What’s New?

Spot-On™ subscribers will be pleased to know that the new version now accommodates your precise queries! You don’t have to switch tabs either.  If all you know is the ZIP code, go ahead and type just that in your tab.  Complete as much or as little information you have available.

The Calculator is now an option button so if you just use the rate details, the calculation box will be out of sight until you need it.

widget Calculate Tab


Here is my favorite part – The Print Screen!  Now you can print easily and with a date – perfect for your audit files.

Awesome improvements so far, right?  But wait, there’s more!

 


If you subscribe to the Use Tax add-on, you now find a Use Tax column in the Details.  Not only for your specific lookup, but if you have another Community sharing that ZIP code, click on that and ….. wow!

You’ll never use your browser again.

Once you download and start using this app, you will never do queries using your browser again.

The Zip2Tax Desktop Widget is free to all Online Lookup Subscribers.  It downloads and installs in seconds.  For easy to follow step-by-step instructions, go to our Desktop Widget page.  When you are done, make sure before you log in you see the Version 2.2.1.

Once you start the widget, just minimize it to your task bar for easy and fast retrieval at your fingertips.d
