New CCH Online Calculator Cuts Through Complexity Of Tax Law To Show 2001 Tax Relief

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., May 31, 2001) –Tax relief for this tax year under the recently passed Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 won’t necessarily end with a $300 or $600 tax rebate – the item that’s been mentioned most often – according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of tax law information and software. Anyone in the 28-percent bracket or higher is likely to see some additional relief, and those with children under age 17 should see still more.

To show just what additional savings might be possible, CCH is providing the Estimated 2001 Tax Relief Savings Calculator at its website, With this new tool, users simply enter their filing status, taxable income and number of children to quickly see how they might benefit.

For simplicity’s sake, the calculator is not designed to deal with the Earned Income Tax Credit, refundability of child credits or the Alternative Minimum Tax.
