Tax research is experiencing a groundbreaking transformation driven by the capabilities of generative artificial intelligence (AI). Over the past few decades, we’ve transitioned from the analog era of law libraries and manual indexing into the digital age of searchable databases and electronic resources. And with that, the demand for efficient, precise, and rapid tax research has intensified. Entering the computational age through large language models, Generative AI is changing tax research forever by delivering efficient research methodologies, rapid summarization techniques, and accelerated drafting processes.
This post aims to offer tax practitioners a look into how these technological advancements are reshaping the future of tax research.

Tax research has historically been a time-consuming and labor-intensive task, requiring exhaustive searches and reading through piles of complex statutes, regulations, and other authoritative documents to find resources that are on point to the client’s tax situation. Generative AI is revolutionizing tax research by offering a streamlined approach to data retrieval and developing a rapid understanding of complex tax concepts. Advanced algorithms are being trained to comprehend the subtleties of the law and contextual relevance, minimizing errors and enhancing the quality of the research. The efficiency gains are not just about speed; it's about freeing tax practitioners to focus on analytical reasoning and strategic tax planning rather than being mired in manual research.
Tax research often requires synthesizing materials and summarizing extensive documents or legislative texts. Generative AI can automate this task by extracting salient points and presenting them in a coherent, succinct summary. This capability is invaluable for staying abreast of emerging law or legislative amendments. Rapid summarization tools can distill complex concepts into easily digestible summaries, empowering tax professionals to make well-informed decisions in a timely manner.
Drafting documents, from simple client emails to more complex memos, is another use case where generative AI greatly impacts efficiency. Generative AI can generate drafts at unparalleled speeds without compromising quality. Generative AI platforms like Ask Blue J can output drafts using simple instructions in your prompt, unlocking massive efficiency gains. Accelerated drafting translates to quicker client turnarounds and a more efficient allocation of billable hours, benefiting tax practitioners and their clients.
Generative AI represents a fundamental shift in the way we approach tax research. By optimizing research methodologies, enabling rapid summarization, and expediting the drafting process, generative AI is laying the groundwork for a more agile and responsive tax profession. For those embracing this technology, generative AI opens new ways to solve their client’s most challenging issues quickly, unlocking extraordinary customer value.
