BLOOMBERG LAW INTRODUCES TAX PRACTICE CENTER
The Latest Addition to the Innovative Research System Provides
Unparalleled Resources to Tax Practitioners
New York, January 15, 2013 – Bloomberg Law, the legal and business intelligence research system from the world leader in data and information services, today announced the launch of its Tax Practice Center. The Tax Practice Center integrates in-depth analysis, commentary, practice tools, news, case law and other primary sources, to give attorneys a comprehensive, nuanced understanding of the critical issues in tax law.
The Tax Practice Center delivers the tools and resources busy tax practitioners need to stay informed, navigate the latest changes to the tax code and communicate implications to their corporate and individual clients. Designed to streamline the research process for tax practitioners, the Tax Practice Center features unlimited access to an integrated suite of primary law and trusted secondary sources, such as Bloomberg BNA’s Daily Tax Report® and an extensive library of transaction and topic-specific Portfolios, which contain practical guidance written by leading practitioners and academics. All Bloomberg Law users now have access to the Tax Practice Center as part of their subscription.
“This is a critical time for tax attorneys as the tax implications of new legislation are great, and we could see in 2013 the first overhaul of the tax code since 1986,” said Greg McCaffery, Bloomberg Law CEO. “The Tax Practice Center on Bloomberg Law provides tax professionals with an enhanced suite of research tools and relevant information to help them address these challenges, and ultimately provide their clients with well-informed solutions to even the most complex tax issues.”
The Tax Practice Center features an enhanced Internal Revenue Code (featuring Bloomberg BNA editors’ notes), relevant practice tools and working papers; and integrates news, analysis, other primary sources and business information to give practitioners a fuller context for strategic scenario analysis. Also, as part of the Tax Practice Center, subscribers can quickly and easily access other uniquely positioned content sets, such as dockets, analysis and treatises, including Practising Law Institute (PLI) treatises.
Key functional features of the Tax Practice Center include the ability to research related primary and secondary sources with ease to save practitioners research time. Secondary sources from BNA, including Portfolios and other analysis, are clearly linked to primary resources including Internal Revenue Code, Public Laws and Treasury Regulations. Moreover, practitioners can find important documents using citation and Portfolio numbers with easy “Go To” search functionality. DealMaker Document Search offers model tax agreements and clauses, and practitioners have access to tax forms from the IRS.
