April 2001 - The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has launched a new Web community focused on small businesses and self-employed workers. The site features online access to tax forms, specific tax items for such industries as construction and restaurants, links to state tax information, and a calendar of red-letter tax dates. "Taxpayers want more 'clicks' than 'bricks' when dealing with the IRS," says Joe Kehoe, IRS commissioner. "They want to be able to get service and information when they want it and where they want it. That's the beauty of the new Web site for small business and self-employed taxpayers." The Web site stems from the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998, which directed the agency to expand and modernize its facilities to communicate with taxpayers. Sen. Kit Bond (R-MO) calls the site "a great leap forward in the agency's quest to provide better service" for small businesses. "Every minute we can save entrepreneurs from tax headaches is time that they can spend doing what they do best – running successful businesses and creating jobs in this country," says Mr. Bond, who chairs the Senate Small Business Committee. To access the site, Internet users should visit www.irs.gov/smallbiz/index.htm.
