Changes are coming to two resources that are often used by tax researchers. The IRS says they will continue to produce the Internal Revenue Bulletin, a weekly collection of rulings, procedures and other guidance, but will stop mailing paper copies. No great loss there: the PDF is readily available online. The Cumulative Bulletin, a semiannual compendium of this guidance (together with some other items) won’t be produced at all. If your collection runs through 2008 (the last ones produced) it is now complete.
Elimination of the largely redundant Cumulative Bulletin will be a time-saver for legal publishers who have had to run a last minute check before publication to determine whether a citation to IRB has to be updated to CB.
