NSA members who have a federal tax question can take advantage of NSA’s tax research assistance capabilities. NSA’s professional research staff will search its extensive library to provide you with the information you need. Questions are typically answered within three business days or less. When you submit a question, our tax research department will research it and send you information, usually including citations.
What you need to know
- To answer your questions in a timely and efficient manner, we recommend you submit your question in writing. This will allow you to include the necessary detail in your question needed for NSA to answer your question and will reduce the amount of time leaving messages back and forth over the phone.
- Please include all pertinent facts with your question(s) with as much detail as possible–the more detail we have, the sooner we’ll be able to respond to you and the less likely it is we will have to go back to you for additional information.
- If you have already done some research, please let us know the extent of your research and the tentative conclusion you reached as a result of your research.
- Do not to send any documentation to the Tax Help Desk that contains private client info, such as social security numbers.
