Takes the crunch out of excise season

(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. FundTax fully automates the wash sale reconciliation process in the back office and provides book and tax gain/loss reports. The companion system, FundMax, provides real-time wash sale avoidance and loss harvesting tools to maximize after-tax returns.

“FundTax has simplified tracking wash sales for our mutual fund clients that trade frequently,” said Joe Neuberger, Senior Vice President, U.S. Bancorp Fund Services.

“FundTax relieves financial institutions from manually tracking wash sales,” said Peggy Hayner, product manager for CCH . “It can give fund managers the tools they need to make tax-wise decisions and takes the crunch out of excise season.”
