PDI strives to be a leader in the tax industry. Our users look to us as source of information for all things related to this industry. We have created this page to keep you updated on the latest news in Federal and State Tax Filing, as well as up to date information on the PDI family of software.

Starting the first quarter of 2013 PDI has added Unemployment Insurance Compliance Forms for Connecticut, Kentucky, and Colorado. Efiling is included, as is our specialized importing. We currently are able to import multiple formats including csv, excel, mmref and xml. If your write up software exports a different format let us know and we'll work to add it!

We continue to add more forms and states as requested. Let us know which forms you need in your business.
