Where: http://tax.cchgroup.com/Legislation/default

Who: CCH, a member of Wolters Kluwer Tax, Accounting and Legal division, Riverwoods, IL

What: US Tax Law Information and Research

Overview: CCH publishes legal information and software. Much of the site is subscription only, and the company offers a variety of for-purchase products for use by tax and legal professionals. The page featured here contains free coverage of recent tax legislation, downloadable in PDF format. You can also sign up for free newsletters, though you will get advertisements about CCH products.

Highlights

• Use of this particular page is free, and you’re not required to register or provide personal information.

• The site loads quickly, has a simple, eye-pleasing layout, and is easy to navigate, without pushy pop-ups and intrusive advertising.

• The on-site search engine is good, returning a mix of free information and for-purchase products.

• Linked legislation coverage is presented in PDF format; other site information is generally html.

• CCH is a well-known provider of tax information, and provides authoritative commentary within the legislation coverage PDFs.

Potential Drawbacks

• During a brief visit, the site loaded 26 cookies; most expired at the end of the session.

• The earliest legislation covered on this page is from February 2008. You’ll need to look elsewhere for prior laws.

Opinion: Good source of authoritative thumbnail versions of recent tax legislation.
