ZIPSales® From CCH Makes Filing Easier
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., June 11, 2002) Ė Automated population of sales
and use tax returns from tax information in a companyís financial
system has made sales tax compliance easier than ever for users of ZIPsalesģ
Returns from CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of tax and
business information and software. (For more information or to order,

or call 866-284-0826.)
Companies can now "offload" the most onerous parts of
their state sales and use tax filings to CCH while still keeping
control over the process.
"ZIPsales Returns provides timely and accurate sales
tax filings with a minimum investment of a companyís time and
resources" said Rick Larson, CCH State Tax marketing manager.
ZIPsales Returns software resides on secure CCH sites,
accessible anytime and anywhere over the web. Users donít have to
install or maintain expensive software or worry about integrating
sales tax reporting with their existing financial systems.
"Whatís important is not only what ZIPsales Returns does,
but what ZIPsales Returns users donít have to do,"
Works With Companyís Existing
ZIPsales Returns can accept
data from virtually any financial package. "Thereís no problem
when a company upgrades or changes its financial software,"
Financial data is exported to ZIPsales Returns where it
populates up-to-date sales and use tax forms, schedules and worksheets
for each state or local jurisdiction for which tax is owed. The data
flows automatically, and CCH analysts maintain the forms database and
"Users donít have to re-key data or worry every time a state
redesigns a form; ZIPsales Returns even selects the necessary
returns a company needs to file based upon jurisdictional information
in the companyís data file," Larson said.
Companies Retain Control
ZIPsales Returns accommodates
a variety of company structures and can accept multiple tax data
files, transactional data, aggregate data or data from multiple,
affiliated entities. Most importantly, taxpayers retain control over
the entire filing process. ZIPsales Returns allows
administrators to review, edit or override any information on the
returns, and a detailed summary report is generated so taxpayers can
track liabilities and payments back to their general ledger or
accounts payable systems. Returns and detailed summary reports are
archived within the product, and users also can download back up
copies for additional audit protection.
"Unlike a completely outsourced solution, you donít give up
control with ZIPsales Returns," Larson said. "You can
easily adjust a credit or apply an exemption by editing or overriding
an item right on the return form and all of the calculations flow
Users also have a range of filing choices. They can print
signature-ready returns or choose "click to e-file" and
"click to remit" options for those states that allow for
electronic filing and payment. Administrators can change company
profiles, add or remove authorized users and designate which bank
accounts should be used to pay tax bills. After filing, payment
information can be exported for incorporation into the companyís
accounts payable system, while the returns and tax data are archived
on the CCH servers for audit protection or further report generation.
