The most helpful part of GoSystem is their team who is willing to help. It is also very intuitive if you know anything about the tax prep world. You can use the software for state, local, and federal returns and it communicates well with other softwares to import trial balances and other information right into the return for business tax returns.

What I like best about this product is that it does help me deliver a finished product to the client. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is how slow GoSystem runs when many people within my firm are using it at the same time. It also seems that many of the representatives do not know how to help with problems. If a rep. is new, it takes much longer to resolve issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

GoSystems is one of the most accurate tax softwares I've used. The customer support is top notch. Often times, when I get a return close to it's final point, I can just call Thompson Reuters and have them adjust any of the final diagnostics or e-file issues. They are incredibly helpful! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Around deadline, the wait times can be high when calling customer service. Being on the East Coast, I try to call first thing when I get to work to avoid any waits. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great tax preparation software. The calculation screens and workpages are top notch. There are even autogenerated statement options for nearly any election, so everything can really be done in the software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

GoSystems allows for so many different tax types and feeds through to all the necessary schedules. The drilldown feature allows you to see where certain numbers flow from and is as important as any feature I've ever used. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

GoSystems allows for efficient completion of returns but feels like it was designed in 1980. I used this system while at a Big Four accounting firm. The system is sometimes a bit delayed on getting new forms populated and uploaded. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

GoSystems is great for tax return preparation but can be a bit of a hassle to navigate. Make sure you have the support number handy as it can be trying at times. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

GoSystem’s diagnostics, while annoying to solve, are helpful in letting the user know what is preventing a filing from being substantially complete, and for some errors, will direct the user directly to the input causing the error. Organizer view and tax view help me know when I am in a screen where my inputs are hard coded and not. The import and export functions make data upload and download super easy; reducing the load on the associate to manually enter values from a return spreadsheet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Diagnostics explanations are hardly intuitive, and often times are surrounded by bundles of XML code, making it difficult to ascertain why an error is even happening. The platform itself requires extensive training to become familiar with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Customer support can take a while to get on the phone with given the sheer volume of calls they receive from tax preparers, but the support I have received has generally been pretty good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The software is user friendly and easy to navigate. The print-preview makes reviewing and making changes to the return super easy to see updates without having to go back and forth to the print preview. It handles state returns very well, although there is still progress to be made with the common state functionality and the information flowing to the returns.

At times, the e-file/validation diagnostics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
