BNA Tax & Accounting has launched its first application for the BlackBerry with the creation of BNA Quick Tax Reference — an electronic version of its popular Quick Tax Reference Guide, which is made available annually in print to tax practitioners. The BlackBerry app is a follow up to an earlier release of the BNA Quick Tax Reference iPhone app in April, which has been downloaded by users across the globe, including Europe, China, and India.
"We’ve received a great deal of positive feedback for our Quick Tax Reference iPhone app and subsequently many requests for a BlackBerry version," says BNA Tax & Accounting Executive Editor George Farrah. "This BlackBerry app gives practitioners tax rates for multiple years: 2007 to 2010, and does basic calculations of individuals’ taxes based on their filing status."
The Quick Tax Reference app is just the latest tool that BNA Tax & Accounting has created to meet practitioners’ changing needs. "We’ve listened to subscriber feedback and requests to receive tax and accounting research tools online and via mobile devices. Our customers rely on BNA for guidance, and we want to make sure they can access the essential information they need no matter where they are," says BNA Tax & Accounting Group Publisher Darren McKewen. "Applications like these just make good sense."
