South-Western College Publishing Provides Comprehensive Online Research Database From CCH INCORPORATED With West Federal Taxation Series and Other Tax Products

New Online Research Tool Helps Students Prepare for Tax Careers

(RIVERWOODS, IL, October 25, 1999) - South-Western College Publishing (SWCP), a division of Thomson Learning and a leading publisher of higher education, business, retail and technology products, has announced an alliance with CCH INCORPORATED (CCH) to provide SWCP tax publication customers with CCH’s U.S. Master Tax Guide Plus®, a comprehensive and authoritative Internet-based federal tax research database. CCH, a leading provider of tax law information and software, has served over four generations of accounting and tax practitioners.

Adding Value to SWCP’s Tax Publications

South-Western College Publishing will offer the U.S. Master Tax Guide Plus with most 2000/2001 editions of its tax products, including The West Federal Taxation Series (WFT) – the higher education tax market leader of over twenty years.

The U.S. Master Tax Guide Plus delivers both CCH’s authoritative coverage of tax information and standard-setting intuitive research capabilities and will enable students to quickly research topics covered in the SWCP’s tax products.

Featuring powerful search tools, the Guide provides real-time access to thousands of statutory and regulatory documents, Internal Revenue Service issuances and Tax and Federal Court opinions, as well as the CCH U.S. Master Tax Guide® , the most popular professional tax reference in the nation for more than 82 years. "This partnership with CCH gives South-Western College Publishing the ability to offer customers a comprehensive and authoritative online tax resource," said Jennifer Codner, marketing manager for tax and accounting at SWCP. "South-Western’s tax customers can now integrate tax research into any course with unprecedented ease."

Catering to the Needs of Future Tax Professionals

Currently used by over 1,400 colleges and universities nationwide, SWCP’s West Federal Taxation Series (WFT) has been the market-leading tax resource in the higher education market for two decades. By packaging the WFT Series and other tax products with the CCH U.S. Master Tax Guide Plus, SWCP hopes to better prepare students for careers as tax professionals.

"This represents an opportunity for South-Western College Publishing to package its market-leading higher education tax products with the leading online research database in order to improve the overall educational experience," said Codner. "This also reinforces South-Western College Publishing’s commitment to the future of tax education."

Customers who package a SWCP tax publication with the CCH U.S Master Tax Guide Plus receive a 180-day subscription to the online service. The subscription, which normally sells for $199.00, is available during this exclusive offer for approximately $30.00. This price is in addition to the purchase price of the SWCP tax product. The customer uses a password, provided with the tax publication at the time of purchase, to access the U.S. Master Tax Guide Plus web site. At the Web site, customers will be able to use key words, article, author and publication names to locate highly specific information regarding all matters of taxation, tax code and law. All sources provided on the U.S. Master Tax Guide Plus are updated in real time, so users can be certain that information is current.
