Peachtree Problem... is this true?

We're running Peachtree Complete 2005 at the moment and were planning to switch to Quickbooks for 2008 because it intergrates with several POS systems we are considering for our stores. Naturally I've had a ton of
Peachtree reps calling me because I haven't upgraded yet, and the last one that called told me that if I wanted to run W2's and 1099's at the end of the year I would have to upgrade to 2008 tax tables and since I'm running 2005 I'd have to upgrade my software as well.
Is this true? This sounds insane to me... why wouldn't this be included with the 2007 tax tables?

It is true for those using V2006 and above, however, you should be OK with 2005 except you may have to manually adjust your W2 to fit the 2007 forms.
BTW: Quickbooks does the same thing.

We had the payroll subsctiption for V2006 this year but won't be renewing it for 2008. In the past I have been able to download the payroll tax updates for versions without the payroll subscription. Will I get the preprinted 2007 w-2 & 1099 forms with the January update? I can deal with the preprinted forms if thats all I have access to. The V2006 client is not in a position to renew the payroll subscription for 2008. Any other options?

No you won't get the W2's and 1099's. The tax subscription expires November 30th so only if you renew will you get the new forms. If you still have the "Unsupported" W2's and 1099 forms in V2006 you can use them. I haven't yet looked at this years forms, so if they have physically changed, you may need to customize the forms.

It is the "unsupported" aka preprinted forms that I am interested in. I guess I will have to wait until January when the tax update is released to see if they update them. I know the w-2 has changed since last year. I don't know about the 1099.

Laura How did you get around the Peachtree problem of only having access to 2006 preprinted forms?

I was able to download the January update manually and I will be using the plain paper tax form wizard available in PT2006 and above.
Go into C:\Program Files\Common\Peach and look for the ini file that goes with your version. Buried in that file is the url of the tax update. Copy/paste that url to your browser address bar to download the update. Note this only applies to peachtree 2006 and above. Folks using Peachtree 2005 and below are stuck using the preprinted forms BUT they will need to modify the existing form to swap the Control number and SSN to be compliant with the new SSA/IRS format.
