National Society of Tax Professionals

The National Society of Tax Professionals (NSTP) is dedicated to serving the tax professional. Founded in 1985, NSTP is a non-profit organization.

NSTP is committed to helping its members attain the greatest expertise, proficiency, and competency in all areas of the tax profession. NSTP exists to equip our members to be qualified to effectively provide professional tax preparation services for their clients.

For nearly 30 years, NSTP has endeavored to support the tax professional community with top quality education delivered by knowledgeable, accomplished instructors. Instructors teach not only about the tax law but how to apply complex tax rules to an individual client's situation. NSTP primarily presents live education – DVDs, self-study courses and webinars are also available. Our presentations are approved for Continuing Education credits with the IRS, NASBA and CTEC.

A multitude of benefits are available to the NSTP member. The Federal Tax Alert, the NSTP newsletter issued 10 times a year, is jam-packed with meaningful and discerning articles. NSTP produces a client newsletter, Tax News, which our members can brand with their own logo and send to their clients. NSTP provides a Tax Research Hotline with unlimited calls available to members. Members earn Dividend Reward points with every purchase and can apply the points for a reduction in future education costs. NSTP members enjoy discounts and special offers through our Affinity Program.

NSTP maintains a high level of contact with the Internal Revenue Service. NSTP members are sought out for their experience and expertise by the IRS whenever new initiatives or programs are being reviewed.
