QuickBooks 2013 R12 Released

Written by Charlie Russell

QuickBooks 2013 R12Intuit has released the QuickBooks 2013 R12 update for the US version of QuickBooks. This is available as a manual update from the Intuit support website. I believe this will also be pushed out as an automatic update at the same time.

Note that if you’re using an Intuit payroll service, this is an important update as it corrects a problem with form 940 and Schedule A.

This update addresses these issues:

  • QuickBooks will no longer display a warning while running a Verify after changing the Admin user name.
  • This release resolves a problem where there would be a “master key” error if you changed a user’s password through Company/Setup Users and Passwords. I’m not sure, but this may be the problem outlined in Intuit KB article SLN42213?
  • The “taxable FUTA wages” on the Employer 940 / Schedule A will no longer be rounded improperly.

If you’re using an Intuit payroll, I recommend that you install this update right away. If you aren’t, then I would suggest you wait a week to see if anyone finds a problem with the release. I don’t expect a problem with this kind of minor release, but I tend to be a cautious person when it comes to ANY update.
