LexisNexis Launches Tax Advisor?Federal Topical



NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 14, 2007

LexisNexis, a leading provider of information and services solutions, today announced release of LexisNexis® Tax Advisor—Federal Topical, the only online federal tax product written by practicing experts that provides Shepard’s Signal™ indicators and 24/7 research support. The Federal Topical service and the previously released LexisNexis® State Practice Insights, augment the award-winning LexisNexis Tax Center (www.lexisnexis.com/taxcenter) and strengthen the company’s tax offering to the marketplace.

“We’ve tapped the industry’s leading experts at state and national levels to bring proven tax strategies and practical guidance to our customers with LexisNexis State Practice Insights and now our Federal Topical service,” said Charles Ter Bush, vice president and managing director, Tax and Accounting at LexisNexis. “These new additions to Tax Center’s already leading array of tax content will enable tax professionals to support their tax positions with the greatest possible degree of confidence.”

Tax Advisor—Federal Topical, a 35-volume online library with nearly 500 chapters, delivers collective wisdom from an army of 140 leading CPAs, tax attorneys and professors. Thousands of tips, examples, checklists and explanations about a breadth of relevant tax topics are also offered on Federal Topical. In addition, convenient Shepard’s Signal indicators allow researchers to quickly determine which IRS regulations, rulings and standings, and case law are the most up-to-date.

“As a tax lawyer for over 30 years, I am delighted to learn about this new ‘Topical’ from LexisNexis. Here is a product that covers federal income taxes, gift and estate tax issues, international tax matters, along with tax practice and procedure questions, all online,” said Rufus V. Rhoades, co-author of Rhoades & Langer, U.S. International Taxation and Tax Treaties, and a practicing tax attorney in Los Angeles. “In addition, Topical will include chapters from various LexisNexis treatises so that practitioners can have expert analysis of issues. The result is that we will have access to a wealth of LexisNexis analytical material and primary source at our fingertips in one product—something we have never been offered before. I can’t imagine research being more streamlined or more complete.”

Other features of Federal Topical include weekly (or more frequent) updates of current federal tax activity, rulings or events; a comprehensive index with more than 60,000 links to chapters and citations; more than 8,200 cross-references to terms; electronic table of contents; and 24/7 online research support complemented by a team of tax attorney editors.

“The Topical’s extensive coverage of estate planning, in general, combined with its focus on the intricacies of federal transfer tax code and regulation provisions make it an invaluable resource for tax professionals,” said J. Martin Burke, Professor of Law and Regents’ Professor, University of Montana School of Law. “A resource like Federal Topical that is continually updated and devotes a full 47 chapters to the many facets of estate planning is just what tax professionals need. This is especially true given recent and ongoing congressional, judicial and administrative developments in the area. The new LexisNexis product could not be timelier.”

Tax Advisor—Federal Topical provides scope of coverage as well as more in-depth analysis and insight of key tax topics than existing products on the market today. Users benefit from:


    An entire tax research library of 35 volumes with 491 chapters.

    More than 32,000 pages of tax analysis and insight.

    A variety of tax topics such as S Corporations; international; partnerships and LLCs; tax accounting; exempt organizations; gift, estates and trusts, and more from the master index.

    Human touch point from a team of experienced tax attorney editors from LexisNexis® Matthew Bender® along with 24/7 tax research and technical support.
