Help clients proactively address tax opportunities, avoid pitfalls and take advantage of the new Law360® Tax Authority publication

While passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in late December marked a watershed moment—enactment of the most sweeping reform of the Internal Revenue Code in decades—its full impact has yet to be seen. Varied interpretations abound as the Treasury Department gears up to implement provisions and issue more detailed guidance in the coming weeks and months. Meanwhile, attorneys and clients wrestle with practical ambiguities. Professionals in your practice can get a head start on clarity with insightful new analysis and comprehensive resources.

Best-in-class LexisNexis resources provide context and arm your practice for the wide range of tax considerations clients will face at the federal, state, and local and global levels.

  • Efficiently stay current with breaking federal, state and international developments in tax law with exclusive new in-depth analysis from experienced tax journalists.
  • Rapidly access essential authority: statutes, legislation and Congressional reports, as well as cases, decisions, guidance and interpretive materials from the IRS and other taxing authorities.
  • Approach unfamiliar issues with confidence: consult a vast, trusted collection of treatises, practice guides and other expert analysis to find rapid direction in topics across a myriad of different contexts.
  • Leverage state-of-the-art Lexis Advance® visual optimization and analytics to help you assimilate and analyze information more quickly and efficiently.
  • Elect the research environment that best suits your workflow and business needs: use the Lexis Advance service for tax research or add the tax-specific Lexis Advance Tax platform, designed by tax attorneys for tailored efficiency. Lexis Advance Tax includes an optional setup that can suppress client-matter entry if the firm prefers not to bill tax research back to clients.
