LexisNexis has introduced Lexis Advance Tax, a specialized research portal providing news and analysis to accountants, tax and estate attorneys, government tax professionals and other tax practitioners.

The online research service includes laws, treatises, industry news and analysis on topics such as tax litigation, corporate reorganizations, structuring new business entities, designing estate plans and managing an organization’s tax compliance.

Lexis Advance Tax combines nearly 1,400 tax, accounting and estate practice sources. By choosing from three specialized Lexis Advance Tax home page options—federal, state or U.S. international—tax practitioners can access the most relevant authorities, related news and their favorite sources that correspond to specific areas of focus. Users also have the option to simplify their tax research by conducting a single search across multiple resources, including cases, codes, regulations, tax analysis and commentary, tax news, and other information related to a particular matter.

A dedicated tab brings together the latest industry news including Tax Analysts, drawing from Tax Notes Today, State Tax Today and Worldwide Tax Daily. Users with separate subscriptions to tax news from Wolters Kluwer’s CCH along with Law360 can access those sources on the tab as well. Users can also set up individual alerts to receive email updates on a particular tax issue or choose a daily email service with top headlines.

The Lexis Tax Advisor—Federal Code Reporter allows practitioners to research and apply the Internal Revenue Code, retrieving the text of each code section along with related Treasury regulations, legislative history, case annotations, explanations, news, along with verification from Shepard’s Citations Service. Lexis Advance Tax includes Shepard’s Citations Service, with coverage of U.S. and state court cases, statutes, regulations, and IRS sources, along with decisions from state revenue departments and other tax authorities.

Lexis Advance Tax users also have access to a range of authoritative insights: They can consult federal, state and international tax treatises from Matthew Bender, including Federal Income Taxation of Corporations Filing Consolidated Returns; Rhoades & Langer and Heckerling Institute on Estate Planning, along with state-specific estates practice treatises, practice guides and form sets.
