U.S.Tax Code

It is common knowledge that the United States has one of the most complicated tax codes in the world. Some would say, " job security for accountants".  BNA and CCH (described under the Library Funded Tax Sites tab) are the two main sources of tax information at BGSU's University Library.

Finding BNA Tax Portfolios

Bloomberg BNA Tax and Accounting Center Database:    

The Tax & Accounting Center is an online database of analysis, practice tools and primary sources for current tax and accounting information. BGSU's subscription includes detailed analysis of the federal tax codes related to income; estates, gifts and trusts; and foreign income. It also includes federal tax forms, highlights from the BNA Daily Tax Report, and the BNA Weekly Report. Use this database to find detailed analysis of U.S. tax codes and current tax and accounting legislative news.

Entering keywords in the search box at the top of the screen will return all relevant resources available in the database that match your search terms.  

Tax Management Portfolios are located within the Expert Analysis (middle) section of the screen.  There is a link to a List of Portfolios directly under the section heading.  Use the Guided Search (link under the top search box) to search within specific resources, including Tax Management Portfolios.   There is also a link to "Search Expert Analysis."

Text of Articles

You can look for the content of any article (for example 27 Nat'l Pub. Acct. 19) by entering the journal title (National Public Accountant) into our library catalog. 

You may see several links (some for paper copies, some for electronic access). If it is not obvious which to click on, ask for help. When you get to a site that has the text, pick the year or volume that matches your citation.

If the title is not at BGSU, you could try using the library's inter-library loan service. Articles in any journal owned by an OhioLINK library should come in 2 to 10 school days. An electronic  copy will arrive via email.
