IRS Offers Small Business Tax Resources
The IRS reminds small business owners that resources to help them comply with their tax responsibilities are at their fingertips at the Small Business and Self-Employed Tax Center on www.IRS.gov.
Each year millions of people visit this easy-to-navigate website designed to help business owners find information quickly and conveniently. Some visitors said,
“Thank you (no kidding). As a small office sole proprietor attorney operating in a small town where people really need some time from me, I have enjoyed the ready assistance that IRS.gov sites provide, which ensures that anyone can access the publications, topics, forms and instructions. This small business and self-employed website truly helped today.”
“This website contains ALL the information I need and probably will ever need. This information is oh-so-timely in that I am about to re-enter the entrepreneurial arena and your information provides the guidelines and content, which will facilitate my re-entry into the small business arena. Many thanks for making my re-entry easy!
“Great source of information. Easy to find specific information. The legalese is not overwhelming, which is what a small business owner like me wants. I don't want to have to run to a lawyer charging $250 an hour to explain text on the site. Keep it going!”
Available information and products
The tax center includes forms and publications, legislative updates, links to state government websites, small business events, a Spanish resource site, an electronic mail service, videos and other educational products. These visitors found the site particularly helpful when looking for specific information:
“This self-employed section is the clearest and most helpful information I've found on my own tax situation. Trying to understand how to pay the right amount of tax is frustrating, but the self-employment tax part you have rendered straightforward. Thank you.”
“The "get a federal employer identification number" wizard is great and the instructions are very clear. The small biz virtual workshop is outstanding.”
Industry specific information
In addition, the IRS has established tax centers for some specific industries and professions, including agriculture, automotive, childcare providers, construction, entertainment and real estate. Begin with the A-Z Index for Businesses page of the website or go to the Industries/Professions link on our website for tax information specific to certain industries and professions.
