Installation Instructions

Installing the CD-ROM:

The media contains an Installshield script to guide you through the installation process.

To begin installation:

      Insert the CD-ROM into its respective drive.

      Find the file Setup.exe on the CD-ROM drive and open it by double clicking on it.  This will start the installation process.

IMPORTANT NOTE    

You SHOULD NOT uninstall any previous JLGold programs.  All screens have been set up for you during installation.  The only change you may need to make is the destination screen (which drive you are installing to).

And you do not have to create a Desktop Icon if you already have one. (If you are using a drive other than the C: drive for your program, you should not create a new icon.)

The update includes the following changes:

  1. Schedule DD-1:  add code “G” for generator
  2. Schedule GA-1:  add tax rate codes
  3. Schedules C, DC, LC. SC:  add federal id #
  4. All schedules:  implement IDOR new prod code changes

The changes to the schedules are data entry changes, you will see the changes when you make your entries.

See the attached on the new data entry options available for each schedule.

The update to the RMFT will now allow you to print the actual form to send to the Illinois Department of Revenue from the worksheet menu.   You will need to check your system defaults to make sure your screens are set up right in order for the print to work.

On the toolbar, click on “System” and then click on “System Defaults”.  On the third screen, “Set Tax Information”, you will need to check that your company phone is listed as XXX-XXX-XXXX and that your check digits are included (you can find your check digits on your preprinted RMFT from the Illinois Department of Revenue.

Example of how the screen should look:

If you use the automatic 1% MFT fuel variance Line 16 should be “N”, if you use any other amount to figure your variance, then you should change it to “Y”.

The next screen “Set Filing Agent” should look like this (with your information in lines 1 – 6):

To use the RMFT worksheets and print the forms, answer Y when you make your IDR File and the program asks “Send totals to MFT Worksheets?”

After that you will use the “Worksheets” button on the toolbar to edit and print your RMFT worksheets and forms.

A screen with a list of available months will show when you click on “Worksheets”, then on the RMFT form you wish to work on (MFT5-DS or MFT5-US)

The features of the worksheet are the same as in the previous programs except for the “Print” feature.  When you click on “Print” now, you will get this screen:

To print the Worksheet, highlight it and press “Exit”, the program will store it for printing and will print it when you leave this application.

To print the RMFT form, highlight “Bitmapped Image” and hit [ENTER]

Your screen will change to look like this:

The first time you print, you will not know if you need to change your left/right or up/down shift, but if you do, this is where you will do that.

Finish following the screen directions to print your forms.
