Creative Solutions and PPC, both tax and accounting software providers and part of the Thomson Corp., unveiled a new integration between tax prep software UltraTax CS and PPC's IRS form preparation software 1040 Deskbook.

"This is just the latest example of our ongoing efforts to integrate Thomson's software, guidance and research products," said Jon Baron, executive vice president of professional accounting markets at Thomson Tax & Accounting and president and chief executive of Creative Solutions, in a statement. "By integrating CS Professional Suite and PPC's most authoritative guidance and RIA's accurate and up-to-date research, Thomson customers can experience unprecedented levels of productivity and precision."

With the new integration, the "Key Issues" in PPC's 1040 Deskbook can now be directly accessed from UltraTax CS's input screens. Key issues are commonly encountered problems such as issues of increased importance due to recent changes in tax law, or troubles in understanding unclear IRS guidelines when preparing a 1040. The PPC application provides answers by drawing on expert analysis, practical examples containing completed forms and practice aids.
