The Law Library is pleased to announce that we have recently subscribed to the CCH Tax Research Network, a comprehensive database of documents related to taxation in the United States. The full text of federal tax law, Internal Revenue Service publications, and numerous interpretive tax guides are available online. Tax reporters for all fifty states are included, as well as current state and federal tax news. The database is fully searchable for free text or individual citations. While the focus of the database is on current practice, archived documents date back to 1978 in selected areas. This resource is available campus wide. The news features of the database can be used to track the potential impacts of proposed legislation on current tax law. The legal documentation can be used to locate relevant laws applying to a particular tax topic, including the text of the Internal Revenue Code, federal regulations, IRS letter rulings, and more. The tax reporters, such as the Standard Federal Income Tax Reporter, provide an interpretive description of current tax law, putting individual rules and legislation in the context of the entire body of tax law. For more information, contact a reference librarian or take a flash demo from CCH. The Law Library also subscribes to these related databases: * RIA Checkpoint - Full-text tax and accounting materials.

This resource is available campus wide. * CCH Internet Research Network - Full-text business and finance materials.
