CCH’s Tax Prep Partner series has expanded to cover nonprofit, estate tax and payroll forms.

The online service guides professionals through complex areas of tax return preparation with line-by-line explanations, a glossary of terms, and a variety of practice aids. 

Tax Prep Partner modules are now available for seven return types: Form 990, Form 1041 and payroll forms, as well as the 1040, 1065, 1120 and 1120S forms introduced last year.

Users can access explanations by either typing in the form number, line number and tax year, or via a menu of topics. A “quick answer” point of entry provides an interactive glossary containing a searchable list of terms and topics.

Another point of entry is through questions and answers. Users open up a screen for each form with a range of questions, browse or use search functionality to find the question they’re interested in, and then open up the answer. Each quick answer has links to further explanations and relevant practice aids.
