Thomson Reuters releases new quick search functionality with answer path from Thomson Reuters Checkpoint

Thomson Reuters has introduced a new search feature, Answer Path from Thomson Reuters Checkpoint, which helps tax professionals of all experience and ability levels find trusted answers in Checkpoint faster.

Answer Path enhances existing Checkpoint search functionality by providing a shortcut to commonly searched federal tax topics. As a user starts to type keywords, Answer Path will show Quick Tax Amounts and Orientation Documents. Quick Tax Amounts offer immediate and reliable answers to straightforward questions such as “what’s the standard mileage rate?” Orientation Documents provide a plain English snapshot of a topic with links to the applicable Code Section(s), and guide the user to more in-depth coverage in their subscription as well as practice aids and instructions to IRS forms.

“Keeping up with changes and navigating the complexity of the tax law is critical to our customers’ tax preparation, planning, and advisory business. Answer Path empowers tax professionals to be confident in their research – regardless of their expertise level,” said Colleen Dillon, Director, Tax Practitioner Segment with the Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting business. “Our new quick search feature helps customers easily get to the answers they need.”

Answer Path will initially focus on topics related to preparing and filing federal individual income tax returns, such as computations, payments, exemptions, deductions, and adjustments. Answer Path is available to subscribers of select Checkpoint products.
