“This app has both the code and regs available for offline access, which is excellent! The code is beautifully formatted for easy reading. Intuitive interface and features. I like being able to bookmark – and it’s easy to use on an iPad. I access this on a daily basis and I couldn’t ask for a better app to work with!” – October 2013
“This app is perfect for my Tax LLM classes. Thanks to this app, I don’t have to carry my copy of the code and regs to class.
