TECHNICAL NOTES

TaxColl2k runs inside Microsoft Access. If you don't have Microsoft Access on your computer, you will need to install the free Access Runtime from our website before installing TaxColl2k.

You don't need to worry about whether you have Microsoft Access or not. When you run our setup program, it will look for a suitable version of Microsoft Access. If it can't find it, it will let you know. At that point, you will just need to install the Access Runtime from our website and then re-run the TaxColl2k isntaller.
