CCH Tax and Accounting Introduces 1040 Express Answers

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., February 24, 2005) – When results count and time is of the essence, the all-new 1040 Express Answers from CCH Tax and Accounting (CCH), the nation’s premiere provider of tax and accounting productivity software, research and services, can speed practitioners through 1040 tax returns easily and accurately. This new spiral-bound quick reference guide makes finding answers during crunch time a simple, intuitive process (

The forms-oriented organization of 1040 Express Answers provides practical answers the way tax preparers work – line-by-line, right down the return. A two-color format makes finding information easy and fast, while plain-English guidance makes the complex rules (and exceptions to the rules) easy to understand and apply.

“We’ve condensed and effectively formatted the information that practitioners need most to prepare a 1040 return and answer client questions into a highly accessible, cost-effective, easy-to-use desktop resource,” said Elice Webster, product manager for CCH.

New Rules, Changes Highlighted

Unique to CCH, 1040 Express Answers fully reflects all changes that impact 1040 return preparation from the Working Families Tax Relief Act of 2004 to the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004– meaning all tax law changes are fully integrated into the text throughout the book.

In addition, 1040 Express Answers offers special features that run uniformly through the book, making it extremely easy to quickly find specific information:

  • Clearly labeled tab sections, easy-to read type and a two-color format;
  • At-a-glance charts and tables summarizing important concepts, facts and figures;
  • Quick-reference icons that clearly and consistently identify What's New, Cautions, Examples, Planning Tips and highlighted “Gray Areas” for must-know information;
  • “What’s New in 2004,” a special feature on the front page of each tab section, highlighting significant changes affecting the topics covered in that section;
  • Handy cross-references to specific paragraphs in the 2005 U.S. Master Tax Guide, provided throughout the text for additional guidance; and
