Taxpayers waiting until the last-minute can rely on CCH CompleteTax to help complete 2006 federal income tax returns, fast and accurate.  

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., October 9, 2007) – With the extension deadline for filing 2006 income tax returns looming, millions of taxpayers who are struggling with paper returns may want to put their pencils down and head online to CCH CompleteTax ( to speed up the process. CCH CompleteTax, from CCH, a Wolters Kluwer business, leverages CCH’s market-leading tax law information and software expertise to provide one of the most comprehensive, easy-to-use online tax preparation and electronic filing solutions.

“The number of individuals relying on CCH CompleteTax to complete and e-file their tax return before the October 15 extension continues to rise as busy people find themselves both tapped for time and often without all the information they need to complete their tax forms by mid-April,” said Debra Gray, CCH CompleteTax product manager, adding that the IRS estimates that last year approximately 1.8 million taxpayers filed electronically after the April deadline.

Once a taxpayer has all the information needed to file their return (for example, 1099s, W-2s), they can use CCH CompleteTax’s streamlined question and answer format to walk through completing the return, and all accompanying schedules. Throughout the process, CCH CompleteTax helps identify credits and deductions a taxpayer deserves and provides a review to ensure the return is accurately completed. An online Tax Guide as well as page-specific help ensures immediate support throughout the process.

In addition to offering electronic filing of the completed tax return for no added cost, CCH CompleteTax also offers taxpayer the option of having any tax refund the IRS owes them direct deposited. With CCH CompleteTax, taxpayers can choose to split their refund and direct deposit in up to three separate accounts, for example, a bank, brokerage or IRA account.

CompleteTax is among the first online tax programs allowing taxpayers the split-refund option. As we head into the fall and tax planning season, this is a great time to earmark at least part of any potential refund towards a retirement account,” said Gray.
