A CCH spokesperson confirmed the sale of assets and added that the "decision was based on CCH's desire to completely focus on serving professional customers in the tax and accounting market." The eSmart website tells consumers that "you'll have the peace of mind that comes with having your return backed by the tax professionals at Liberty Tax Service" and notes that they can use Liberty's store-based services if they decide not file online.Last modified on Sunday, 02 June 2013

CCH Sold CompleteTax to Liberty
CCH has gotten out of the consumer tax software with the sale of its CompleteTax product to franchisor Liberty Tax Service. The change was effective in December when the product, once known as CompleteTax, went on the market as eSmart Tax by Liberty Tax. The companies have had a relationship regarding tax software since Liberty contracted to use CCH software while it prepared its next generation product.
