"Focus on Tax provides readers with cutting-edge insights presented in excerpts from a wide-range of our publications, free of charge, every month," said Richard Jarvis, Managing Editor of CCH Focus on Tax. "Not just abstracts of content, Focus on Tax gives readers entire sections of our content selected by our editorial staff to help them stay abreast of hot issues or gain insights into areas outside the realm of their normal areas of practice."

Well-Rounded Sampling

The latest issue of Focus on Tax includes a well-rounded sampling of interesting articles on a variety of tax topics:

  • In a selection from the CCH book Real Estate Taxation: A Practitioner's Guide, seasoned tax professional David F. Windish, JD, LL.M., guides the reader through investing in real estate for its safety and income potential. He points out tax opportunities and pitfalls that the savvy investor must be aware of when making buying and selling decisions, especially those relating to financing.
  • The editors of CCH’s State Income Tax Alert newsletter share the results of their survey of some of the nation’s leading experts on state taxation on whether the tax-planning advantages of LLCs, LLPs, LPs and other members of the flow-through entity "alphabet soup" have changed now that states are squeezed for revenue.
  • Prominent tax attorney Peter C. Canellos of Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz addresses the question of whether tax shelter attorneys can effectively represent business clients in a keynote speech delivered at the prestigious University of Chicago Law School Tax Conference. This speech is from the March 2003 issue of TAXES Magazine, which also features many other important sessions from the conference.
  • Jae K. Shim, Ph.D., MBA, provides tools for analyzing potential tax benefits in retirement plans, pension plans and real estate in a comprehensive chapter, "Tax Advantaged Investments," reproduced from CCH’s brand-new 2003 U.S. Master Finance Guide.

Previous issues of Focus on Tax have featured subjects including forming an exempt organization, the uses and abuses of special purpose entities, state taxation, ramifications and consideration of trade show participation, income tax and estate planning with S corporations and preserving client capital through tax and investment decisions.

Articles in Focus on Tax have come from such sources as S Corporations: Tax Practice and Analysis by Michael Schlesinger and Practitioner’s Guide to IRS Tax Penalties by Robert J. Collins, newsletters such as E-Commerce Tax Alert and State Tax Review, and journals such as in CCH’s Journal of Taxation of Financial Products, Journal of Retirement Planning and the Journal of Tax Practice Management.

"Our free e-mail Focus on Tax service offers professionals a great way to tap into the thinking of leading practitioners and academics through the specially-selected excerpts offered each month. We think it’s an effective way of ‘sampling’ our publications and understanding the great contribution they bring to the professional literature. Focus on Tax makes the whole process of delivering these insights and excerpts very simple," Jarvis noted.
