The Guidance You Trust


Featuring industry-leading guidance, CPE courses and time-saving, customized tools for tax, audit and accounting professionals, our PPC® experts offer many ways to help you bring your clients the highest possible value, quality and consistency.

Relied upon by thousands of firms as the “industry standard,” PPC is the leading national brand for specialized information, guidance and practice aids for accountants, auditors and tax practitioners.

PPC Tax Compliance Deskbooks and Planning Guides

PPC tax compliance Deskbooks and planning Guides have been the industry leader for over 25 years. The reason is simple: they provide complete and easy-to-understand answers for solving real-life tax return and planning issues. Other tax publishers stop with interpretation and analysis, often leaving you to determine how something should be reported. PPC tax compliance Deskbooks and planning Guides take you the rest of the way, bridging the gap between interpreting the tax law and reporting real-life client transactions.

PPC core compliance Deskbooks on Checkpoint have been enhanced with Interactive Practice Aids. Now you can retrieve all the Interactive Practice Aids available in a particular Key Issue or Illustration through an innovative Context Panel. You can launch and complete Interactive Practice Aids directly within Checkpoint and save them to a Checkpoint folder or export them and work offline.

Interactive Practice Aids are available now in the 1040, 1041, 1065, 1120, 1120S, 706/709, 990, 5500, and Payroll Tax Deskbooks.

PPC’s complete line of Audit and Accounting guidance and Practice Aids is available on Thomson Reuters Checkpoint®.

Rely on PPC’s Audit and Accounting Materials — Peer Review Reports

Great news — we received a peer review rating of “pass” for our latest peer review, and our peer review report has been formally accepted by the AICPA National Peer Review Committee. The profession-wide scrutiny placed on peer reviews of accounting and auditing materials has increased, and the negative consequences of a deficient peer review are serious. Our dedication to quality contributes both to your engagement effectiveness and firm profitability.
