During the tax season, ProFile is often updated with new information, tax rates, forms etc. It is important to keep your copy of ProFile up to date. The recommendation is to check at the very minimum, once a week. ProFile can be updated two different ways. 

Note: an Internet connection is required to update ProFile.
