IRS.gov Offers Help for Small Businesses
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced an abundance of free resources available to assist the nation's 45 million small business and self-employed taxpayers with their tax responsibilities. And, they are all just a mouse-click away.
The small business section of IRS.gov provides a one-stop resource for information on starting and operating a business. On this site, taxpayers can:
- Learn about employment tax requirements;
- Make tax payments;
- Find out how to set up and distribute retirement plans;
- View a streaming video of a small business tax workshop; and
- Order free products like a tax calendar or small business resource guide.
"Running a business is a big responsibility, and the IRS wants to help ease the process for this dynamic group of taxpayers," says Kevin M. Brown, Commissioner of the IRS Small Business/Self-Employed Division. "In an effort to save businesses money and reduce their paperwork burden, over the last year, the IRS has implemented a number of initiatives to simplify tax forms."
