WS+B Partner Anthony Nitti Contributes to National CCH Expert Treatise Library
Anthony J. Nitti, CPA, MST, Partner with WithumSmith+Brown, CPAs, co-authored the recently-released CCH Expert Treatise Library: Corporations Filing Consolidated Returns. The treatise is a comprehensive analysis of the tax law as it applies to corporations filing consolidated tax returns, and is set to become the primary research tool on the topic for CCH. CCH is the nation's largest tax research provider with hundreds of thousands of subscribers to both their online platform and their printed resources, which includes the Federal Tax Reporter and a library of focused treatises.
Between July 2011 and January 2012, Nitti authored five chapters -- Reverse Acquisitions, Election to Discontinue Filing Consolidated Returns, Allocation of Consolidated Tax Liability, Estimated Taxes, and Earnings and Profits -- contributing over 600 pages of in-depth analysis to the treatise. His work on Reverse Acquisitions was signaled out by CCH's editing team, calling it the leading authority currently available on this extremely complicated topic. Currently, the treatise is published in electronic format on the CCH research platform, with hard copy publishing soon to follow.
The new chapter provides an in-depth guidance to consolidated return taxation issues. It also includes many examples as well as practice aid to help professionals comprehend the rules governing income taxation of consolidated corporate groups. Along with Anthony Nitti, the expert authors for the CCH Expert Treatise Library: Corporations Filing Consolidated Returns included Joshua T. Brady, JD, partner at Ivins, Phillips & Barker and Mark Banks-Golub, JD, LLM, member of the Illinois Bar Association.
The entire CCH Expert Treatise Library is accessible through the IntelliConnect® research platform.
