Thomson Reuters and EY Team Up to Distribute EY Tax Alerts

NEW YORK – Thomson Reuters and EY are pleased to announce a joint initiative to bring EY Tax Alerts to Thomson Reuters Checkpoint, providing corporate tax professionals, tax preparers, accountants and tax attorneys with access to a valuable resource for tax news and research.

EY Tax Alerts provide timely updates and authoritative insights from Ernst & Young LLP’s National Tax Department, focusing on the most important developments from the IRS, Treasury, Congress, the courts, states, and international rulemaking bodies such as the OECD. EY Tax Alerts complement the daily reporting and research materials that Checkpoint customers already receive, providing interpretive and insightful analysis and helping practitioners make confident and informed decisions for their clients and practices.

“Today’s complex and ever-changing tax environment makes keeping up with industry and legislative developments very challenging for tax professionals,” said Steve Mendelsohn, Managing Director, Knowledge Solutions, with the Thomson Reuters Tax & Accounting business. “This challenge can be severe in small companies or firms that don’t have the benefit of a national office or network to rely on for keeping them abreast of the most critical developments.”

“Giving our customers one source for industry-leading news makes this challenge less formidable. With the addition of EY Tax Alerts and related content to our other award-winning Checkpoint news sources, such as Reuters, PPC, WG&L, and RIA, our customers will have the ability stay up-to-date with important industry developments and legislative changes that may impact their clients or business,” he added.

“At EY, we are focused on technology innovations that better equip tax professionals now and in the years ahead. This leading-edge integration and enhanced delivery model for EY tax insights provides tangible time-savings for today’s busy practitioners,” said Kate Barton, EY Americas Vice Chair for Tax Services.

In addition to having EY Tax Alerts available for research, Checkpoint subscribers can receive e-mail updates based on areas of interest, including federal tax, state and local tax, international tax, and pension and benefits. EY Tax content available in Checkpoint includes EY Tax Alerts, EY Breaking Tax News Alerts and EY Tax Newsletters.

Customers whose subscriptions now include EY Tax Alerts will be able to take advantage of the additional content on Checkpoint immediately.
