Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting releases CCH AnswerConnect
Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting has launched a new product, CCH AnswerConnect, a tax information service for practitioners and corporate tax professionals who need access to tax content to advise their clients.
CCH AnswerConnect covers all areas of federal and state tax law, with international content in development for future release. In the Federal Tax Code Section, users can access to the entire Internal Revenue Code in a 360 degree view that includes full text of the law, history, regulations, newly-written explanations, related cases, forms and tools. Each federal tax topic contains analysis, practical applications of the law, news, examples, gray areas, infographics and videos. The State Tax Topics provide broad coverage on a given issue with links to specific treatments in each state, as well as access to CCH State Tax SmartCharts – a high-level snapshot of tax treatment across states, with access to more details as needed.
Other tools on offer within AnswerConnect include practice aids, expert analysis, support materials, examples, cautions, compliance help and learning tips.
Wolters Kluwer developed the solution by observing tax professionals and how they found answers. The company found that the solution needed to be intuitive and practical, and that information needed to be topic based.
“We know our clients need access to expertise and productivity solutions that integrate seamlessly into their daily activities and workflow, and they can’t risk productivity loss,” stated Josh Braunstein, executive vice president and general manager of Wolters Kluwer Tax & Accounting, research and learning U.S. “Now, they can use CCH AnswerConnect to get immediate access to accurate fast answers as well as in-depth information needed for decision-making and planning, all in one place. It’s our most intuitive tax research platform yet that actually helps users do less research.”
