New CCH Books Provide Comprehensive, Practical Coverage of Hurricane-Related Tax Acts
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., December 19, 2005) – CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business and a leading provider of tax information, software and services (CCH), will offer two new books to help professionals understand and comply with the Katrina Emergency Tax Relief Act of 2005 and the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005.
CCH’s Law, Explanation and Analysis of the Hurricane Tax Relief Acts of 2005 (est. 400 pages, $45.00) details the wide range of tax relief measures and incentives for individuals and business to invest and rebuild in the areas devastated by hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma. CCH’s Conference Report of the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005 (est.168 pages, $17.50) reproduces the full text of the tax provisions of the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005 that amend the Internal Revenue Code and the Conference Committee report.
“Practitioners with clients in the affected areas, and those who need to stay on top of tax legislation generally, can become familiar with the new laws in a thorough and timely way with these authoritative new resources,” said CCH Executive Editor for Books, Joseph Gornick. "The numerous technical corrections included in the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005 are also examined. These changes are significant as they relate to nearly every major area of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004, and they clarify provisions in other tax acts going back to 1987."
The comprehensive Law, Explanation and Analysis of the Hurricane Tax Relief Acts of 2005 offers detailed explanation of the new laws and related IRS pronouncements along with practical guidance from CCH’s analysts and contributing expert practitioners to help tax professionals make sense of and apply the changes enacted in the tax legislation. It reproduces the text of the Internal Revenue Code as amended by the new laws and pertinent Committee Reports and Joint Committee on Taxation descriptions. Also provided are valuable tables of Code sections amended, effective dates and other helpful finding lists.
CCH’s Conference Report of the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005 includes the tax provisions contained in the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act that amend the Internal Revenue Code and the Conference Committee Report explaining the current law, the changes made and when each of these changes will go into effect. The Report indicates legislative intent and is particularly helpful pending the issuance of final regulations in areas where the Code is unclear.
“Congressional intent expressed in Committee Reports is regarded by the Courts as very high authority in determining how to apply new law,” Gornick noted.
Complete coverage of the tax legislation is also provided to subscribers of the CCH Tax Internet Research NetWork™, as well as print and CD subscribers of CCH federal tax services. In addition, free online tax legislation updates at tax.cchgroup.com are provided via CCH Tax Briefing newsletters and daily legislative updates.
CCH’s Law, Explanation and Analysis of the Hurricane Tax Relief Acts of 2005 (est. 400 pages, $45.00, plus tax, shipping and handling) and the Conference Report of the Gulf Opportunity Zone Act of 2005 (est.168 pages, $17.50, plus tax, shipping and handling) can be ordered by contacting CCH at 1-800-248-3248 or by going to onlinestore.cch.com.
