Submit the Form



Access to the service is limited to students currently enrolled and taking classes in the MS Tax program.

Upon submission of this form,  we will verify your status in the program and  proceed to set up (or renew) an account for you with RIA.

Once the account is set up,  you will be e-mailed a password and username with which you can access the RIA. The password is valid for one semester. Upon expiration and  assuming you are still an active student taking classes, you will need to fill out and re-submit this form.

We hope you will take full advantage of this powerful and very useful web-based research service both to supplement and enhance your studies while in the MS Tax program and to advance your career in taxation.

To fully and best utilize RIA,  you might wish to explore some of the features under "help" and "tool and tips" and should consider printing out the "quick reference guide" and the "user guide" for reference.
