CCH to Offer BNA Content on CCH Tax Research NetWork

Partnership Brings Together Trusted Tax Resources to Make Comprehensive, Authoritative Research Even Easier

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., September 16, 2005) – CCH Tax and Accounting (CCH), a leading provider of tax and accounting information and software, today announced that subscribers to the CCH ® Tax Research NetWork TM will soon be able to access tax-related content from BNA, including BNA Portfolios, via CCH (Tax.CCHGroup.com).

As a result of an agreement with BNA, a selection of BNA’s premier tax resources, including the rich, in-depth transactional analysis of BNA Portfolios on topics such as income, estate, state and international taxation, will be available from a CCH Tax Research NetWork session, effective later this year.

“CCH customers have used our award-winning tax research information and tools and BNA content side-by-side for years,” said Catherine Wolfe, Vice President, CCH Tax and Accounting Publishing. “Now, through this new partnership, users will no longer need to interrupt their research to move from one trusted resource to another. BNA research materials can be seamlessly accessed from CCH Tax Research NetWork giving professionals a single stop for the information and analysis they need.”

The respected Portfolio research resources from BNA are transactionally based and form the perfect complement to CCH’s comprehensive coverage of wide-ranging tax issues. And, working with BNA content on the CCH Tax Research NetWork, users can link directly to CCH’s Code and Regulations as they drill down to precise law and regulatory provisions. Users can also link between Portfolios as they review in-depth discussions across a range of issues.

“In recent years, CCH has advanced tax research significantly by integrating its authoritative content with robust workflow tools such as SmartRelate and CCH@Hand,” said Wolfe. “As a result of this new partnership with BNA, we’ve again advanced our tax research offering by making CCH’s online platform a single source for the most trusted resources and tools professionals need to do their jobs with confidence and efficiency.”

“We are delighted with this partnership,” said Greg McCaffery, BNA Chief Operating Officer and President of Tax Management Inc. “Subscribers to the CCH Tax Research NetWork can now have access to the wealth of BNA news and analysis – including BNA Portfolios – from within the same platform they use routinely to access their other tax and accounting information.”
