“The enhancements and refinements in this new version of Sales Tax Office confirm that CCH is delivering on its goal to produce the most innovative, best-of-breed solutions in the marketplace,” said Bruce Krumlauf, CCH Sales and Use Tax Product Manager.

New Customer Exemption Management Functionality

With a built-in Customer Exemption Management module, users can now manage customer exemption certificate information directly in Sales Tax Office. Exemption information can be exchanged between Sales Tax Office, the company’s ERP or any third party Exemption Certificate Management system via web services.

In addition to these enhancements:

  • The Look-up function now includes a combined rate;
  • The Locations function now supports location-based filing requirements;
  • The sourcing algorithm has been enhanced; and
