Download Earlier Versions

In 2007 through 2010, I was forced to split the spreadsheet.  This was due to the fact that earlier versions of Microsoft Excel limited the number of cell format changes.  For example, Schedules D-1, Continuation Sheet for Schedule D, and E, Supplemental Income and Loss, were split out because they contain a lot of format changes and they are mostly "stand alone" schedules. 

From 2011 through 2014, a newer version of Excel was used to prepare the spreadsheet; however, an Excel 97-2003 (Lite) version was available for users who do not have Excel 2010 (or later).

For 2015 (and later), the Lite version is discontinued.
