How do I work with the different tax sources?
Lexis Advance® Tax includes several primary and secondary sources that can aid you in your research. These sources contain cases, codes, regulations, and analytical content, to name a few.
As you view these sources:
- You can view information about the source. Choosing this option lets you see who published the source, its coverage, a description of its contents, and so forth.
- You can add a specific source to your search so that you can review specific results for it. You can include multiple sources in your search. Any results will be retrieved from just the sources you specify.
- You can view all of the documents related to the source.
