(RIVERWOODS, ILL., December 3, 2003) – CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of tax research information and integrated compliance software solutions, has launched the latest version of CCH® Internetsm Tax Research NetWork™ (TRN) on the Internet, complete with more intuitive navigation, consolidated access to productivity tools and faster access to research questions.

"Time is money," said CCH director of product management Mary Ann Dean, "and every minute counts as busy professionals look to add value and provide expanded services to their clients. With those needs in mind, CCH redesigned Tax Research NetWork to give users easier access to our superior content and tools."
Integrated Productivity Tools Now in One Location for Fast Access
"CCH has long been the industry leader in providing integrated productivity tools and practice aids," noted Dean. "Now, our outstanding suite of practice aids and productivity tools are even more convenient to use."
Users can find all the tools in their subscription on the new "Tools" tab, in addition to the content libraries.
Tools are grouped into three areas:
: Here users will find intuitive CCH Toolkits, such as CCH Depreciation Toolkit and CCH Client Letter Toolkit, as well as handy lookup tools such as IRS Actuarial Factors.
Quick Answer Charts: Users will find critical rates and rules with ease, using charts such as Federal Tax Rates and Tables, and Multistate Quick Answer Charts.

Building on the Best
