Although Texas allows businesses to use many of the same forms year to year, the TaxAct program does not support or allow business customers to use a different year’s product for the filing of another year’s report. A 2019 Federal return is needed to complete a 2020 Texas Franchise Tax Report. The 2020 report actually uses 2019 Federal numbers, but is labeled 2020 because it is filed during the 2020 calendar year.

If you are needing to file any year prior to the current year report, you will need to use the forms and instructions available on the Texas Franchise Tax Forms website.
