Wolters Kluwer, CCH Small Firm Services has enhanced its ATX and TaxWise software for the 2014 tax season with a streamlined user interface and “more robust” research content, including an ACA library.

Among the enhancements for ATX:

  • The user interface has been redesigned based on user feedback, to simplify data flow and increase productivity.
  • The new release system continuously delivers product updates.
  • A central contact center gives preparers access to up-to-date information.
  • Content now includes a new integration with the Master Tax Guide Reference Book, interpretations and line-by-line explanations at the point of need.

For TaxWise, enhancements include:

  • A new Configuration Assistant that walks users screen-by-screen to configure the software, including adding and managing users; establishing printing options; choosing carry-forward settings from previous years; and entering default information for all returns.
  • An improved Managed Returns grid that gives users more flexibility in viewing, tracking and reporting on clients. A Return list allows users can select data elements to see on screen and export them to Excel or .csv files. Users can also now drag-and-drop the order of columns, filter data based on column value and set and track return stage from within the list.
  • TaxWise Online is now compatible with Google Chrome.
  • A new research library offers resources on the ACA, with briefings, research aids and client letters, among other things.
