A Message to the TaxAlmanac Community

The TaxAlmanac team would like to wish everyone a successful tax season! We are looking forward to partnering with you throughout the year to ensure your tax research needs are met. We hope to continue to learn from you and are encouraged to see members of the community helping each other in the Discussion Forums. We would also like to thank TaxAlmanac contributors who have submitted articles, created user pages, and edited articles. All of this makes the site more valuable to other members of the TaxAlmanac community.

The site was created because many of our customers told us they felt that the current solution to tax research was expensive and difficult to use. Sounds like another great opportunity for Intuit! Since we launched about seven months ago, more than 7,500 people have signed up for a free TaxAlmanac account. Traffic has increased by nearly 500% unique visitors per day in the past few weeks. You're a big part of the success of this site and we thank you for contributions in helping to get this beta site launched.

We are also proud that in a very short period of time, this site has caught the attention of the accounting trade magazines, blogs, and major magazines. The June 6, 2005 edition of Time magazine featured an article on Wikipedia. TaxAlmanac was highlighted as "A Community of Customers" in the hard copy of the Time magazine article entitled "It's a Wiki, Wiki World." The November 21, 2005 edition of Business Week magazine featured an article titled "50 Smart Ways to Use the Web" in which TaxAlmanac was selected as one of the top 50. TaxAlmanac was cited as a best practice in the collaboration category. Again, thank you for helping make this site successful.

We plan on making some major improvements to the TaxAlmanac site during the coming year. If there's anything we can do to make TaxAlmanac a better resource for you, we would love to receive your feedback in the feedback section of the Discussion Forums.

Thank you and have a great 2006!
