Upcoming Wolters Kluwer System Maintenance

Wolters Kluwer is planning a system upgrade on November 14. This upgrade will improve the security of the authentication process on IntelliConnect, Cheetah and RBsource/RBsourceFilings.

For most customers this enhancement will be transparent, and no action is required.

However, if your firm uses OneLog, OneLogin, OKTA, LookUp Precision, Research Monitor, or other Digital Resource Management (DRM) software, you will need to make a configuration change in that software over the weekend of November 14 in order to avoid a disruption of service on Monday, November 16.

You’ll find more information at our Customer Support site

You may also contact Wolters Kluwer Technical Support at 800-835-0105 (8 am to 8 pm CT, Monday-Friday), or visit our support page at https://support.cch.com/ticket/contactus.aspx.

Training Tip for IntelliConnect

Question: What is the easiest way to look up news for specific Internal Revenue Code sections within IntelliConnect?

Answer: The easiest way to look up news for specific Internal Revenue Code sections is to use the Federal Tax Practice Tool Federal Tax Current Developments by Code Section Smart Chart which provides convenient access to federal tax current developments for the past 12 months organized by Internal Revenue Code section. The Smart Chart includes links to the text of Tax Day stories and access to related CCH explanations in the Standard Federal Income Tax Reporter, Tax Research Consultant, Federal Excise Tax Reporter, and Federal Estate and Gift Tax Reporter as appropriate.

If a Code section does not appear with the Smart Chart’s “Select Code Section” listing, it means that there have been no current developments for that section within the past 12 months.

Step 1—Select Code Section(s)

Step 2—View Results displayed in reverse chronological order.

Use links to access the Tax Day Story and corresponding CCH Explanations in a variety of publications:
FED = Standard Federal Tax Reporter
FINH = Federal Estate and Gift Tax Reporter
TRC = Tax Research Consultant
ETR = Federal Excise Tax Reporter.

Note: You’ll only be able to access the CCH Explanations that are available within your subscription.

Step 3-Click and choose time frame for viewing recent updates. (Items updated during a specified period will be highlighted in yellow.)

Step 4—Choose to Save, Print, Email and/or Export your chart via commands in blue tool bar on right margin.
