Wolters Kluwer, CCH Launches CCH Apportionment Suite.

Innovative Solution Provides Fast, Must-have Details on Apportionment Calculation Items on State-by-state Basis

RIVERWOODS, Ill., Sept. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer, CCH today announced the launch of its new CCH Apportionment Suite, enabling tax professionals to determine apportionment, proper sourcing of items and final calculation of specific state apportionment percentages. The innovative solution, particularly benefitting corporations with business operations in multiple locations, provides practitioners with resources to navigate evolving apportionment rules on a state-by-state basis, effectively plan for the future, and meet compliance obligations.

In preparing state corporate income taxes, one of the most complex issues facing professionals is trying to distribute the income of multi-state corporations among the states in which they operate. Many states have changed their corporate tax rules for calculating apportionment - moving from standard criteria, where total taxable income of a multi-state corporation could be assigned to specific states, to formulas more focused on sales. As a result of this and other trends, there are substantial state-by-state differences in how corporate income is apportioned.

"Recent developments and the overall complexity surrounding apportionment planning and calculations across multiple jurisdictions creates a formidable challenge for even the most seasoned corporate tax professional," said Jennifer Lowe, Wolters Kluwer, CCH's Editorial Director for Research & Learning. "The CCH Apportionment Suite has been designed to keep practitioners in step with the ever-changing legal landscape of apportionment - making sure professionals and businesses effectively plan for the future while at the same time meeting compliance obligations."
