Thomson Reuters has published a new white paper with advice on how tax professionals can be better tax researchers.

The paper, "Unlocking the Limits of the Keyword: 5 Ways to be a Better Tax Researcher," addresses the key challenges that practitioners face when answering complex tax questions, exploring the evolution of the tax research process from print to digital and examining the viability of the keyword search.

Modern technology allows researchers to delve into complex tax-related topics more efficiently and accurately, the paper noted, outlining five ways to improve tax research by taking advantage of technology such as Thomson Reuters’ own Checkpoint Catalyst system.

“Increased complexity in business operations and tax law can result in information overload,” said Jennifer Kowal, professor and director of the graduate tax program at Loyola Law School, and author of the paper. “Expectations for fast yet accurate answers make performing tax research difficult in today’s environment.”

The white paper is available here.
