Creating Non-US Tax Reports

just to make you aware, I am working on something similar:
*Bug 710873* <> -New 
Tax Declaration Info Report - multi-national, multi-purpose (private, 
business, ...)

Right now it can be run in parallel to the TXF Code editor.
I am basically finished with what can be called "feature 
implementation", and now turn to bug fixing - meaning: I am going to 
apply it for my own tax declaration this year.
If nothing serious comes up, I might have something to publish by mid of 
the year (incl. documentation).

Kind regards,
