I've just listened to the La Certe audio for the tax research program offered that can be linked to the software or used stand alone. It's $400, and I'm wondering if anyone else uses it and what your experience with it has been? I've bought a couple of different research programs and while they are helpful, they are also overwhelming sometimes. I often just go to the IRS website and take a look at the actual code. Thanks for any insight.

Hard to pay big bucks for Lacerte's tax research when internet research available. We've dropped most of our subscription services.

If you dropped most of what you were using, what did you keep and why did you keep it? The demo on the La Certe program is kind of interesting since it it available within the program so you don't need to exit or minimize.

My question here is what are you assessing on your research. It it only the IRS code and regs which have wording thats impractical to answer questions; or does it also access easy to read help such as THE TAX BOOK. Why would someone use this research when you can just open THE TAX BOOK (or Quickfinder, Or CCH 1040 Express)

What is The Tax Book? How do you get information regarding it?

The Tax Book is published by the former creators of Quickfinder. -- Larry Hess, CPA, Albuquerque, NM - Talk to me

Do you recommend the new "All Inclusive" version of this? Do you use this more than the Master Tax Guide, or along with it? The price is way better than the La Certe program.

Personally, I use just he 1040 edition for quick and dirty answers because I also subscribe to RIA's Federal Tax Coordinator online for more in depth information. Last year I also bought the Depreciation Quickfinder which I also have found to be quite useful. -- Larry Hess, CPA, Albuquerque, NM - Talk to me
