Yahoo! beefed up its auction site by adding a premier area to Yahoo! Auctions (auctions.yahoo.com). Yahoo! will provide a link to the galleries of auctioneer and fine arts and antiques appraiser Butterfield & Butterfield. The competition between fine arts auction houses is moving online and creating fierce competition. Yahoo! also launched Yahoo! Finance Tax Center (biz.yahoo.com/taxes/), a year-round site where users can find tax information, tax forms and prepare and file returns.
