(RIVERWOODS, ILL., February 10, 2004) – U.S. Bancorp Fund Services, LLC has adopted GainsKeeper FundTax™ to automate wash sales for select mutual fund clients. FundTax is an automated tax lot service from CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of securities law information and software and a Wolters Kluwer company.
FundTax was introduced in 2000 and remains the only tax lot accounting service with fully automated wash sales.

The companion system, FundMax, provides real-time wash sale avoidance and loss harvesting tools to maximize after-tax returns.
