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.

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 Illiad. Articles in any journal owned by an OhioLINK library should come in 2 to 10 school days. An electronic  copy will arrive via email.
