NSTP Tax Research Service

Please note this is a completely different service from our Tax Helpline which is unlimited calls with payment of 10 continuing education credits taken or registered with NSTP each membership year

The NSTP Tax Research Service is an expanded research source available to both members and non-members. You will be provided with a written report including tax sources, tax code and tax law cites as appropriate. The rate for members is a minimum $75.00 for the first half-hour, then $37.50 for each additional quarter-hour. Non-member rates are $99.00 for the first half-hour, then $49.00 for each additional quarter-hour. The NSTP Tax Research program focuses on providing assistance with federal tax issues. The Tax Research staff is unable to assist with either state specific or software entry issues.

Remember – the regular Tax Helpline Service by telephone is still available to members with payment of 10 continuing education credits taken or registered each membership year. The regular Helpline Service does not provide responses to email or other written follow-up to the issues presented. Go to the Member Section of the website for the telephone number and other information regarding the Tax Helpline.

To initiate a research request, select the link, “Submit your question here!” and complete the form. All information must be provided including a detailed description of your request. Be sure to include what research or resources you may have already accessed regarding this topic. One of our Tax Researchers will receive your completed form and contact you to fulfill the research request. The Tax Research Service will respond to your request within 48 to 72 hours (not including weekends or federal holidays).

Payment for the initial fee ($75, member or $99, non-member) must be paid at the time the request is submitted. If the researcher feels that additional time will be needed to fulfill the request, they will notify the requestor during the initial contact. NSTP members will receive Dividend points when utilizing this service.
