(BOCA RATON, FLA., October 30, 2006) – CCH announced today that for the 2006 tax year, professionals will be able to track and manage their clients’ electronically-filed state and federal returns more easily than ever before with an exclusive web-based Electronic Filing Status System as part of ProSystem fx Tax from CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business and a leading provider of tax information, software and services (CCHGroup.com). The new system was announced at the CCH 2006 User Conference for tax and accounting professionals held in Boca Raton October 29-November 1, 2006.
“This new system is a result of CCH’s ongoing investment in best-of-breed solutions to speed workflow and improve profitability,” said Jo Ann Cummings, CCH product manager. “ProSystem fx Tax saves users the administrative legwork e-filing can require. With the Electronic Filing Status System, customers experience immediate productivity gains and enjoy the convenience and time savings of being able to do everything online, anytime, anywhere.
View, Check Status of All Returns
With the web-based Electronic Filing Status System, users can view and check the status of all their electronically filed returns, attach any required PDFs to applicable returns, release returns to taxing authorities and even stop processing of a return in its early stages. Diagnostic and support tips on the Electronic Filing Status System translate any rejection codes into straightforward how-to-fix-it suggestions. Users can view separate statuses for federal and multiple-state e-filings, customize their views by return status, preparer and other criteria and easily export all views to Excel.
The new status system also provides a handy reference giving information about the e-filing requirements for each state. In addition, users have access to downloadable e-filing instruction guides to filing electronically, on preparing 1120 and 1120S consolidated returns for e-filing and on attaching PDF files to returns. A “Forms Release Status” tab contains up-to-the-minute actual or projected release dates, by product, for each federal and state form and ProSystem fx Tax program updates are regularly made available for download between regular CD releases to ensure that users are as current as the IRS in e-filing compliance.
“ProSystem fx Tax will e-file over 4 million returns this year, and our acceptance rate is the highest of any software vendor,” Cummings noted. “With the new Electronic Filing Status System, e-filing becomes even easier to manage, with benefits for our customers and their clients alike.”

CCH offers web-based seminars to help professionals become e-file ready. By attending the Electronic Filing Overview Training seminar from their office or home, users gain the familiarity needed to set up the ProSystem fx Tax Office Manager and prepare a return for submission.
