CCH Offers Insight on Year-End Tax Planning and Government Shutdown

New tax and legal briefings from CCH, a part of Wolters Kluwer, are now available to help tax and accounting professionals prepare clients for potential impacts from the government shutdown as well as recent tax law changes. The new CCH Tax Briefing: 2013 Year-End Tax Planning explores some of the 2013 year-end planning opportunities available to taxpayers, especially as the result of provisions that are new for 2013 and those that, at the moment, are scheduled to expire after this year. CCH provides tax, accounting and audit information, software and services.

“In addition to changes coming from the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 as well as new tax rules applying to same-sex married couples, there are other variables that could also impact the upcoming tax season,” said CCH Principal Federal Tax Analyst, Mark Luscombe, JD, LLM, CPA. “We could be looking at a delayed start to the tax filing season depending on how long the government shutdown goes, and there’s also the possibility of comprehensive tax reform coming in 2014.”

Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, a global provider of research products and software solutions for legal, regulatory, and business professionals, has issued an authoritative briefing on the government shutdown prepared for attorneys and compliance professionals. Written by Paul Clark and Georgia Koutouzos, senior writer analysts for Wolters Kluwer, the Government Shutdown Update Briefing, outlines the current impact on departments and services that are critical to the legal and regulatory infrastructure.
