The quarterly update for 3/31/2011 is a targeted update. The only changes are centered around the tax specific calculators calculators, which have been updated to the preliminary 2011 tax rules and rates. There have been a few other updates, but they are limited to optional changes and enhancements. The one exception to this are new rates for 72T calculations. If you do not have any tax calculators or 72T calculators, you may safely skip this update.
If you have not updated your calculators in a while you should definitely refresh your existing HTML calculator pages. All updates are cumulative, so if you start fresh with this update you will have all previous calculator updates as well. If you would like, you can review our 12/31/2010 update: 12/31/2010 Update. (The 3/31/2011 update includes all changes included in previous updates, you do not need to download any other updates to have the most current versions of all of the calculator components.)
Make sure to try our Calculator Configurator: Calculator Configurator
This new tool lets you see exactly how you can customize the many features of our calculators.
*Please note, if you have a Servlet or other custom deployment (other than the custom formatted delivery described below), installation instructions for your package will found on your download page.
Update for custom formatted delivery**:
**Custom formatted delivery is a special option that you can add to your maintenance update service. With this option we can apply an HTML, JSP, CFM or ASP template to your calculator pages and their reports before the update is sent to you. You will then receive your calculator pages with all of your site formatting in place, without any rework to include changes that have been made to the pages deployed on your server. If you are interested in using custom formatted delivery, please contact us at (612) 331-2291, or for more information.
All pages will be custom formatted to your site, no further integration or modification of the calculators is required. Please note, if your custom delivery uses Active Server Pages (ASP), Java™ Server Pages (JSP) or Cold Fusion (CFM) the respective ASP, JSP or CFM pages will be in place of your HTML documents for all calculator main pages. Report templates will remain in HTML documents (these documents are not called by your server, but instead used by the applet in the main calculator page).
To clear your Browser's cache:
When you test the new version of the calculators, make sure that the browser you are using uses the new files instead of any it may have in its cache. You may need to clear the browser's cache manually to ensure the new versions are loaded.
Choose "Internet Options" under the "Tools" menu and on the "General" tab click on the "Delete" button under the Browsing History section. Click the top button "Clear private data now..." Click "Ok" when prompted if you wish to delete all temporary files. Close this dialog box, and all open Internet Explorer windows. Your Cache should then be cleared.
Firefox and Netscape:
Choose "Clear private data..." under the "Tools" menu. Check the box for "Cache" and then click the button "Clear private data now".
All additional inputs are considered to be annual amounts that happen at the beginning of the year. If you have two items that overlap, they will offset (or partially offset) each other. The inputs allow for 10 lines (one pre extra withdrawal or deposit) and consist of:
If the year to start is the same as the year to end, we assume the amount is deposited or withdrawn only once in that year. On the report, in this case, we clearly state this is one year. If it is more than one year, then we give the start and end dates on the report.

<PARAM name="TERM_MAXIMUM" value="40">
Replace the value with the required maximum term.
