Quicken can help you stay on top of your finances and make achieving your goals and planning your financial future easier. If you feel that your spending is out of control and feel powerless to contain it, you're definitely not alone, and Quicken can help you.

Quicken gets you set up easily by just answering simple questions about your goals in the Quicken Guided Setup, and Quicken makes sure you're setting up the right items, such as accounts, bills, and paychecks. Use it anytime when you're just starting out or whenever you want to add new accounts or goals. When it's finished getting you set up, it even tells you what to do next.

You, too, can make Smarter Investment and Tax Decisions with Quicken using Intelligent Investing Alerts (Premier exclusive). The investing world is constantly changing and Quicken helps you stay on top of it. Get alerts when a stock beats analysts' estimates, when the MorningstarŽ rating on your fund drops and more. See how it relates to your investments and get suggested next steps to explore.

Use Tax-Smart Investing Insights (Premier exclusive)to alert you to opportunities to offset capital gains or losses or when similar but more tax-efficient investments are available or when taxable events occur, like a mutual fund distribution occur.

Use Three Tax Reports (Premier exclusive) Schedules A, B and D to help you stay on top of deductions, interest and dividends, and capital gains. And they'll help you prepare your taxes more easily. My favorite screen is the Investing Center, Today's Data window. As an active investor, I update it at least twice a day and always begin the day looking at the watch list at the bottom of the page for news about my watch list securities and the markets in general. It's a real timesaver!

Use the Investment Sale Optimizer (Premier exclusive) this way: if you needed to come up with $5000, Quicken can help you find an optimal way with its technology. Set your criteria from various options like "minimize taxes" or "maximize ROI" and Quicken can help you select a combination of securities to sell. Best of all, this sophisticated investment optimizing aid, which is part of the Capital Gains Estimator, is simple to use!

Use the Investor's Reference Guide (Premier only) to learn with tutorials on getting started with investing, evaluating stocks and mutual funds, bonds, investing strategies and more.

Use the Capital Gains YTD Snapshot (Premier exclusive) which includes a quick snapshot of your capital gains situation for the current tax year so you'll always know where you stand.

Tracking your paycheck deductions helps you with tax planning and 401(k) tracking. We've redesigned Paycheck Setup to look like a pay stub, so it's much easier to see what goes where. And Paycheck Setup now lets you start in mid-year by entering year-to-date amounts for all items. So you can get a more accurate tax picture without entering all your previous paychecks.

Why pay late fees and finance charges when you don't have to? Let Quicken track your bills, remind you when they're coming due, and even pay them online for you if you like. Quicken Guided Bills Setup makes it faster and easier to let Quicken know which bills to track and what you want Quicken to do with them.

A Conversion Wizard automatically launches when you install Quicken and seamlessly helps you upgrade your Quicken data file from an earlier version, saving you time and worry.

Typing your transactions by hand is tedious work, and tracking down errors can cost you hours. Why not download that data instead? Now, Quicken can download transaction data from over 2000 banks, credit card, brokerage and 401(k) companies, including the Quicken MasterCardŽ. You'll save time and increase your accuracy.

Stop writing checks, licking envelopes and sticking stamps! Quicken bill pay lets you pay anyone from the phone company to the babysitter directly from within Quicken. It works with any checking account in the United States.
