Hosted Environment Compatibility
TaxCalc may work perfectly well in the following environments but we cannot guarantee it:
While releases may be tested on these configurations and we will make reasonable efforts to support customers with queries encountered on them, we may not be able to correct any issues that emerge. These environments are not within TaxCalc’s core operating parameters and planned or emergency updates to TaxCalc may render it unable to run within a given environment, at little or no notice. However, TaxCalc will make efforts to provide an update to remedy such environment-related issues as soon as reasonably possible.
