​​Federal Tax Research Service

By relying on our research services, you’re able to focus on what matters most—your clients’ experience.

Give us a call today 800.558.3402, ext. 2! Upon request, we’ll send you supporting documentation to back up the answer you receive.

Submit Question Online

Members receive one FREE federal tax research question each calendar year, plus 50% off the nonmember rate on all subsequent answers.

Discuss Your Question

​Some other research services only accept email questions so if the person on the receiving end doesn’t understand the question, you lose precious time trying to communicate the issue. That’s not the case with us. You can explain your question over the phone and have confidence when you hang up that the researcher understands your question in full.​

Supporting documentation

You can be confident in the accuracy of our information and can even request supporting documentation for the answer you receive. It’s all part of our commitment to providing the highest quality service.​​
