Ryan and BNA Develop New Comprehensive Sales and Use Tax Navigator

Press Release Oct 07, 2010

Dallas, Texas – Ryan, the leading tax services firm in North America, with the largest transaction tax practice in the United States and Canada, today announced that BNA Tax & Accounting (“BNA”) has launched the Sales and Use Tax Navigator, researched and developed by Ryan as part of BNA’s comprehensive Premier State Tax Library.

The Sales and Use Tax Navigator offers users unique access to detailed state-by-state tax information, including appropriate citations to primary sources, tax rates, taxable base, taxation of service, bundled transactions, filing requirements, taxation of leases, and much more. Using this powerful knowledge database, tax practitioners can gain immediate insight into complex state tax issues, compare and contrast state tax department positions, perform scenario analysis, defend previous state tax positions, and develop state tax minimization strategies.

“Given the rate of change and complexity in sales and use tax legislation, practitioners have told us that they need immediate access to and analysis of complex tax issues,” said George Farrah, BNA Executive Editor. “Subscribers to our new Sales and Use Tax Navigator gain access to insightful and practical analysis developed and written by Ryan, a recognized leader in the tax services industry.”

“Our development objective for BNA’s Sales and Use Tax Navigator was to build the most comprehensive and practical tax knowledge database and research tool available in the industry today,” said Megan Mahony, Co-Practice Leader of Ryan’s National Tax Practice. “We’ve dedicated a team of seasoned Ryan tax professionals that will ensure the Sales and Use Tax Navigator’s content remains accurate, relevant, and well organized.”

“We are honored to have been selected by BNA to provide tax research and expert analysis for the Sales and Use Tax Navigator,” said G. Brint Ryan, CEO and Managing Principal of Ryan. “Our tax professionals are proud to share their tax knowledge, insight, and best practices for managing the complex sales and use tax environment across the United States.”
