Exclusive Features

These features are tax and accounting exclusives

  • We report more income, excise and estate and gift tax cases on Checkpoint, so the odds of finding that one case closest to your fact pattern greatly increase.
  • You’ll get editorially-enhanced Federal tax cases and IRS rulings, which include prior histories for cases or cautions for rulings, numbered headnotes by issue so that you can quickly locate the discussion in the full-text and links to all referenced source material carried on Checkpoint.
  • Our Citator 2nd helps you see not only any direction taken upon or by a case or ruling, but any later citations of the case or ruling — which are enhanced with our editorial evaluations, judicial histories including overruled by legislation, and Court Filter.
  • Link directly from a Code subsection to paragraph-specific analysis in our WG&L® treatises (which are regularly cited by the courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court!).
  • Plus, you can use the New Law link to get from the Internal Revenue Code directly to the analysis of recent legislation that impacted a code section — and see pending legislation via our Bill Tracker.
  • Need history? Link to Prior Regulations and back again to Current Regulations — plus you’ll see not just how a Regulation appeared at the end of the year; you’ll also see each version of the Regulation since it was originally issued.
  • Take advantage of this unique feature for accounting research: Our Top Line Links take you between FASB pre-codification standards and the Codification to quickly see and compare all versions of a Regulation since issued, at a glance right in your sidebar.
