We are constantly updating our software and adding new features to our programs. Basically we release a new version of the program whenever there are enough features, or a big enough feature, that we feel would benefit our users. In the case of Version 5.2, the addition of the 1998 federal withholding tables was important enough to warrant an updated version, and in addition to the tax tables we released the other changes that we had made to the program.

We understand where you are coming from and that is why we have added the ability to download the tax tables at no charge from this website. When we go to a 32-bit version, we hope to add the ability for you to be able to download other small changes to the program such as tax tables and bug fixes.

Also, yes we will have another update later in the Winter that will add changes to the Payroll section of this program (as has been mentioned in a previous posting).

We've done our best to keep our update prices reasonable. Also, we do not require you to purchase every update. Our update system works well in that you can skip updates that have features that you don't really need and just purchase an update when you see features that you want, without buying all the prior updates. Basically what I always suggest is wait to buy an update until you find that it has enough features to make the $60 price worth it to you.

In your case, if you've downloaded the federal tax tables from this website, then you probably don't even need the version 5.20 update. And additionally, unless you are paying employees with multiple piece rates or unless you are in a state that we are adding to the state withholdings, you probably won't need the next release.
