Product Information:

The backbone of Intuit's small business product ecosystem, QuickBooks offers a portfolio of products and services that go beyond accounting.

Whether brick-and-mortar or on the Web, from home-based businesses to firms with hundreds of employees, more small business owners choose QuickBooks products and services to help them manage and market their companies and succeed than any other product.

Beginning July 2005, all U.S. versions of Intuit's Quicken, QuickBooks and TurboTax desktop software have an authenticity hologram on the inner ring of each CDROM.

This new hologram shows the "Intuit" logo changing into the word "Authentic" as you tilt the disc under light. The hologram is present on all authentic discs that have been manufactured by Intuit or its authorized manufacturing partners.

If you don't see this hologram on a disc you obtained, that disc may be counterfeit and may expose your computer to significant risks.

Counterfeit software has been found to contain malware, viruses and password grabbers that may put your computer at risk and expose your identity and financial information to criminals.
