Happy Birthday... TaxAlmanac!

Celebrating One Year of a Tax and Accounting Professional Community

Just one year ago, Intuit launched a new online community called TaxAlmanac – an innovative tool that brings together tax and accounting professionals who want to share knowledge, information and insight about tax law research. Created to offer an alternative to expensive and complex tax research solutions, the site has experienced an overwhelming response since its inception – now boasting more than 10,000 registered users and 169,000 unique visitors.

The feedback from those who use the site - some of whom are our customers and others who are not – has been phenomenal. Tax preparers across the country are initiating dialogue and discussions on a wide-range of topics thanks to the recently-added Discussion Forums launched late last year. Registered users simply ask questions of their online peers and receive quick and useful responses.

While those who frequent the site have come to appreciate all that TaxAlmanac has to offer, business and industry publications are also taking note. Since being launched last June, TaxAlmanac has been featured in several accounting trade magazines, blogs, and major publications, including:

  • The CPA Technology Advisor, " Offers Interactive Online Resource", 9/1/05 - " offers the promise of a revolutionary leap forward in how tax professionals research tax laws and create and share knowledge."
  • Warrillow Weekly, "Intuit's wiki ways win word-of-mouth", 4/18/06 - "A cutting-edge example..."
  • Time Magazine, "It’s a Wiki, Wiki World," 6/6/05 - Highlighted as "A Community of Customers"
  • Business Week, "50 Smart Ways to Use the Web," 11/21/05 - Selected as one of the top 50 and cited as a best practice in the collaboration category.

In the upcoming year, we look to you - members of the TaxAlmanac Community - to help us make the site an even better resource for you and your peers. Simply tell us how we can improve the site to better meet your tax research needs by posting a comment in the Discussion Forum.

We hope to continue to learn from you and thank all of our TaxAlmanac visitors who have submitted and contributed tax information and research, making the site a valuable resource for all members of the TaxAlmanac community.

The entire TaxAlmanac team thanks you, the TaxAlmanac Community, for all of your support this past year!

Tim Doyle, Brian Andrews, Mike D'Avolio, Michael Rainwater, and Jeff Wolfe.
