New CCH Tax News Highlights App Delivers Latest Tax News On-the-go: From Drawing Board to Mobile Launch in Only Six Weeks

(SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS, November 7, 2011) – Moving quickly to meet the growing mobility needs of tax and accounting professionals, CCH is making it possible for anyone to track updated federal and state tax news on mobile devices with its new Tax News Highlights App. CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business is a leading global provider of tax, accounting and audit information, software and services (CCHGroup.com).

The Tax News Highlights App on CCH MobileTM is now available for free to download onto iPhone®,  iPad® and Android™ devices. The App was spearheaded by CCH’s newly formed Agile Publishing Solutions team, a rapid development prototype team. Users benefit immediately from accessing the most current federal and state tax news from CCH’s premier editorial content anytime and anywhere they need information.

“We consistently listen to our customers and their feedback is a key driver of the technical innovations we deliver in our products,” said Elizabeth Weissman, CCH Director, Agile Publishing Solutions. “When it became clear there was high demand for a CCH Tax News Highlights App, the rapid development team ramped up production and delivery to help our customers efficiently maximize mobility.”

For now, the CCH Tax News Highights App focuses solely on the most up-to-date federal and state tax news headlines – available at the touch of a screen icon. The App has the ability to grow into a much larger information content source designed for professionals, educators and students for all relevant tax and accounting news.

CCH Mobile Innovation

This newest Tax News Highlights App builds on the 2010 release of CCH Mobile – providing convenient access for CCH IntelliConnect® subscribers to authoritative research content, news and information whenever and wherever it’s needed. Both applications are an extension of IntelliConnect’s powerful tax research platform, making CCH’s premier content and tools available on mobile devices. Tax and accounting professionals can conveniently access answers and tools on the spot – when meeting in person with clients at remote locations, or whenever they need quality content fast.

While the Tax News Highlights App currently provides access to Federal and State Tax news to IntelliConnect subscribers and non-subscribers alike, CCH Mobile provides IntelliConnect subscribers on-the-go access to the specific research and information they need including (depending on subscription):

  • CCH Tax Tracker News – Enables IntelliConnect subscribers to set up customized and automated daily searches for news articles to stay on top of the latest developments;
  • Internal Revenue Code and Regulations – Consistently updates code and regulation changes that can impact your clients or your business;
  • Tax Tool – Features CCH CorpSystem® ZipSales Lookup for searching sales tax rates throughout North America by zip code; and
  • CCH Smart Charts – Highly visual tools for researching:
  •           - Rates: Adjusted Applicable Federal;
              - Federal: Employee Plans and Compensation;
              - SALT: SST State Taxability Matrices and Sales Tax; and
              - Multistate: Income Tax, Sales Tax, E-Filing and International.

CCH Mobile tools are available for users of BlackBerry®, iPhone® and iPad® devices.

The new CCH Tax News Highlights App was developed in partnership with UST Global®, the NEXT-Gen IT services and solutions provider. CCH and UST Global recently announced a new partnership to create an innovation lab to research emerging technologies, and fast-track prototypes and proof of concepts to ensure CCH customers benefit from new products and solutions first.
