NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Bloomberg (News - Alert) Law, the legal and business intelligence research system from
the world leader in data and information services, today announced the
launch of its Tax Practice Center. The Tax Practice Center integrates
in-depth analysis, commentary, practice tools, news, case law and other
primary sources, to give attorneys a comprehensive, nuanced
understanding of the critical issues in tax law.
The Tax Practice Center delivers the tools and resources busy tax
practitioners need to stay informed, navigate the latest changes to the
tax code and communicate implications to their corporate and individual
clients. Designed to streamline the research process for tax
practitioners, the Tax Practice Center features unlimited access to an
integrated suite of primary law and trusted secondary sources, such as
Bloomberg BNA's Daily Tax Report® and an extensive library of
transaction and topic-specific Portfolios, which contain practical
guidance written by leading practitioners and academics. All Bloomberg
Law users now have access to the Tax Practice Center as part of their
"This is a critical time for tax attorneys as the tax implications of
new legislation are great, and we could see in 2013 the first overhaul
of the tax code since 1986," said Greg McCaffery, Bloomberg Law CEO.
"The Tax Practice Center on Bloomberg Law provides tax profesionals
with an enhanced suite of research tools and relevant information to
help them address these challenges, and ultimately provide their clients
with well-informed solutions to even the most complex tax issues."
The Tax Practice Center features an enhanced Internal Revenue Code
(featuring Bloomberg BNA editors' notes), relevant practice tools and
working papers; and integrates news, analysis, other primary sources and
business information to give practitioners a fuller context for
strategic scenario analysis. Also, as part of the Tax Practice Center,
subscribers can quickly and easily access other uniquely positioned
content sets, such as dockets, analysis and treatises, including
Practising Law Institute (PLI) treatises.
Key functional features of the Tax Practice Center include the ability
to research related primary and secondary sources with ease to save
practitioners research time. Secondary sources from BNA, including
Portfolios and other analysis, are clearly linked to primary resources
including Internal Revenue Code, Public Laws and Treasury Regulations.
Moreover, practitioners can find important documents using citation and
Portfolio numbers with easy "Go To" search functionality. DealMaker
Document Search offers model tax agreements and clauses, and
