Checkpoint Catalyst

How can I quickly go from question to answer to action in my tax research?

The Whole Picture

Checkpoint Catalyst is the fastest, most efficient way to research even the most complicated tax issues.

Checkpoint Catalyst delivers so much more than any other type of online research library, it’s in a category of its own. As the next generation of online tax research, Checkpoint Catalyst is the first product of its kind to be created specifically for the web—not designed and formatted for print.

Now, you can get the whole picture of a topic—with sources, diagrams, interactive tools and featured developments that come together in context, all on one screen.
