INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Accountants' Index'

Because it was designed as print-only publication, the Accountants' Index saw diminished relevance in the Internet age. As a result, the Index was renamed the Accounting and Tax Index in 1992. Adjustments included a redesign to the index structure, searchability and online accessibility. The new Accounting and Tax Index is still available in print form.
