Taxation Resources: Business Article Databases

IUP Library resources related to the study of taxes and taxation at the U.S. Federal and state levels.


Online databases can be used to search for articles and other materials by keyword.  Because these are commercial databases that require special access, you will find a lot of information that you cannot get through Google or other searches of the free web. To access any of these databases, go to the IUP Library Home Page (, click on “Databases” and then select the database you need from the alphabetic list.
