DescriptionTouchTax - Mobile Tax Code and Regulations (Tax Deskbook App), by Com-Lab (Mobile) provides easy and affordable offline access on your Android phone and tablet to all 7,700+ sections of the latest edition of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code), and the Treasury Regulations set forth in Title 26 of the Code of Federal Regulations (the Regulations).

The application’s goal is to replace your physical copies of the Code and Regulations with electronic versions that are always up-to-date, while giving you frequently requested advanced features making it easy to read and manage the law. The Code and Regulations incorporated into TouchTax are full version electronic adaptations of the official law published by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the United States House of Representatives, the Treasury Department and the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO). As of June 2012, TouchTax contains the latest publications of the Code (current through April 5, 2012) and Regulations (current through April 1, 2012) published by the GPO. The GPO states that the next Code and Regulations revisions will occur in April and May 2013, respectively. TouchTax is expected to be updated as soon as these new versions of the Code and Regulations are made available – and currently the author anticipates making these updates available free-of-charge via the Google Play! application market in the form of future application updates.
TouchTax includes the ability to reference all 7,700+ sections of the Code and Regulations offline without the need for an Internet connection (and without the need to purchase any additions or features). As a result of user feedback, I’ve also added a new keyword search function (which, however, does require an Internet connection) allowing you to search Code and Regulation sections based on exact keyword matches as well as natural language relevancy hits. TouchTax also permits you to add individual notes to Code and Regulation sections and to email entire Code or Regulation sections along with your notes (which the author thinks is a very convenient feature!). TouchTax also has a bookmark feature, permitting you to bookmark (add favorite) frequently referenced sections. TouchTax includes a convenient note-taking feature, allowing you to add notes to code and regulations sections. Those notes can be sent by email, together with copies of the code sections or regulation sections. There's even a feature to view all notes that you've entered, and email all of those notes in a single email.
Version 2.5.1 now contains tables of content for the Code and Regulations, all accessible without the need for online access. Everything (except for keyword search) in TouchTax is available offline and is all contained within your handheld/tablet device.
