“CCH’s StateSmartCharts are a shortcut to the answers that practitioners need without the necessity of targeting documents and formulating searches,” said Product Manager Angela Darrow. “Now, they’re accessible right from state tax forms in ProSystem fx Tax. If you’re working on a California return, you can pop up the CaliforniaSmartChart menu and answers to dozens of questions are just a click away.”

StateSmartCharts zero in on issues that come up again and again in state tax practice, such as rate schedules, filing requirements, modifications to bonus depreciation, NOLs and group filing requirements.

Users just select a topic and a SmartChart pops up with a quick answer, explanation and links to additional information. Answers can easily be exported into either Microsoft® Word or Microsoft® Excel and SmartCharts can be saved directly to client files.

SmartChart links provide immediate access to state statutes and regulations for deeper research and audit trail purposes if desired. SmartCharts also link to industry standard CCH State Tax Reporters for state tax research and editorial commentary. Users decide how much or how little additional information they need.

“You can save SmartCharts and they will update automatically whenever you open them again, and even highlight any changes in the law,” Darrow said. “They’re a great productivity tool.”
