NSTP Welcomes You!

NSTP was founded in 1985 with a goal to help Tax Professionals improve their business through association with other professionals, promotion of continuing education, a code of ethics, and cooperation between members of the profession.

Those goals haven’t changed. For over 35 years NSTP’s Board of Directors, Instructors, Helpline Staff, and Office Staff have diligently provided the very best continuing education in tax preparation, ethics, and client service.
