CCH has upgraded its IntelliConnect online tax and accounting research service with improvements in its user interface, search features and research tools.

The home page now displays tabs stretching across the top of the screen for better organization. The dividing bar moves to the center of the page for better use of the browse tree, which now opens in a larger window.

Searching for specific information through the browse tree has become easier with new functions to pinpoint specific content titles. One click of the new (+) or (-) icons on the left side of the home page expands or contracts the content search list – meeting the user’s information needs.

On the search side, new pre-search filter changes enable users to select specific jurisdictions and courts pertaining to their research. All content items chosen during a research session are tracked and remain “selected” – allowing users to customize search-pulled content by adding and dropping items as needed. As in earlier versions, multiple searches may be opened simultaneously with the ability to toggle back and forth between items.

Other enhancements to the latest release of IntelliConnect include enhanced linking to related information, including current developments, federal and state comparisons for federal tax searches, and CCH explanations, statutes, cases, rulings and regulations for state tax searches.

The service also now includes “Next” and “Previous” document links. Flipping through on-screen pages works similarly to reading a book, with the “Read Next” and “Previous Document” buttons on each document.

Users can now employ a Search Bar to find citations and see the full text as well as other citation references in the results field.
