“Reconciling every investment to the K-1s was a real administrative challenge for us. K1x was a huge help pulling in information because it took data entry off us.  We love its ability to move data from one K-1 line item to another—this reduces the hassles with reclassification & eliminated data entry work. We needed something more robust. Now we have drag & drop and integration with important third-party software. I think everybody should use this!”

“It was huge for us to be able to use the select all and export all investments feature. This produces a large grid that has each level of input for each K-1. We can easily discover now whether the preparers picked up that information correctly. Did the intern remember to pick up a transfer to another fund in the tax basis calc? Maybe not, but K-1 Analyzer definitely did.”

“C-TRAC is very user friendly, easily navigable. Support is great. We get quick answers. This is a solid solution for nonprofits. The team is great. Rollover to the new tax year is quick, often within the day. All we do is hit refresh on our browster and the new tax year information can be entered. It’s not just pretty good. It’s better than pretty good.
