ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BNA's Premier State Tax Library, well known for providing expert-written topical state tax analysis, has been expanded to include a Corporate Income Tax Navigator and an Individual Income Tax Navigator. These new tools offer tax practitioners access to up-to-date, detailed state-specific tax data. In addition, BNA has added hundreds of customizable charts with the Corporate Income Tax Chart Builder and Individual Income Tax Chart Builder.
"With most states facing widening budget gaps and taking a hard look at ways to generate more revenue through modifications in the tax code, tax practitioners need a way to easily find the most current tax information for the states in which they or their clients do business," notes George Farrah, Executive Editor at BNA. "We're offering a way to quickly find the state-specific analysis practitioners need with links to applicable statutes, regulations, court cases, and tax department guidance. The launch of these new navigators brings the added dimension of expanded state-by-state coverage to BNA's robust state tax information service."
Offering easy navigation of tax subject areas through a consistent structure from state to state, BNA's new state tax navigators include the insights of expert practitioners and combine both a topical and state-by-state approach. Easily created charts go beyond a 'yes' or 'no' answer with thorough explanations and links to relevant primary sources and further information within BNA's core state analysis.
