Thomson Reuters today introduced Checkpoint Catalyst, a new generation of tax research featuring multi-jurisdictional content, embedded tools, and an enhanced search engine. Built on the award-winning Checkpoint platform, Checkpoint Catalyst gets tax professionals the results they need quickly and easily.
As tax laws become increasingly complex, tax professionals need an online research platform that enables them to master this changing and challenging environment with speed and certainty.
Thomson Reuters Checkpoint already delivers expert analysis, news, and authoritative guidance on tax planning and compliance to hundreds of thousands of tax professionals — including 99 of the top 100 U.S. CPA firms, 96 of the Fortune 100, and 97 of the top 100 U.S. law firms.
Now, after over two years of development, extensive customer input, and a multi-million dollar investment, Thomson Reuters has launched Checkpoint Catalyst — making Checkpoint better than ever.

Steve Mendelsohn, managing director of knowledge solutions for the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters, added: “Checkpoint Catalyst transforms the tax research process for complex tax issues and business-related transactions. It provides research content in context, enabling our customers to move from insight to action swiftly and easily.”

“When you use Checkpoint Catalyst to research a tax issue, you’ll have greater confidence that you’re getting a complete picture and that your research process has been thorough and comprehensive,” said Steve Zelman, senior vice president of product platforms for the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters. “It connects the dots between federal, state, and U.S. international tax implications better than anything else on the market.”
At the same time, Thomson Reuters Checkpoint — including Checkpoint Catalyst — has been enhanced with intuitive search functionality, allowing tax and accounting professionals to search the way they think. Triple-powered relevancy makes use of technological innovation, editorial insights, and user behavior patterns to simplify the research process, quickly getting practitioners the most pertinent results.
“Checkpoint Catalyst is another major step forward in a product that already had good usability,” added Randy Johnston, executive vice president with K2 Enterprises. “The design makes research faster, easier and more comprehensive with fewer steps. If you haven’t recently considered how research is being done at your firm, it is time to review this product.”
