Save the date for our Indiana NATP annual conference. We will be at The Ritz Charles in Carmel, Indiana


Our instuctor this year will be Melinda Garvin, EA. Melinda is a tax professional at Foos Garvin Accounting, LLP. in Ohio and has 30+ years of experience serving individual and businesses tax needs. Melinda has been an instructor for The National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP) for over 10 years and has served in the past on the Ohio NATP Chapter Board as the Education Director.  Melinda has also been a presenter at the IRS Nationwide Tax Forums and instructed various tax classes for Ohio State University, Ohio State Bar Association, State Chapters of NAEA and local organizations.

Melinda's instructor specialty is in Ethics and Securing Tax Offices; so, to further encourage tax professionals in office 'best practices', she authored the manual "Audit Proof the Tax Office" and has since then published a second manual called "Best Practices for the Tax Office". Melinda has a strong aspiration to support the tax professional's many sides of interactions with clients, IRS and the always needed education.
