DC Partners with IRS

The Washington, DC Office of Tax and Revenue has partnered with the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to introduce a new resource facility for small businesses and self-employed individuals.

The new IRS Tax Center on DC.Gov makes it easier for small businesses and the self-employed to locate information relating to federal taxes. Topics of interest on the site include: business structure, electronic filing, retirement plans, online tax courses, and the location of IRS offices.

The IRS Tax Center program was introduced as a means to broaden the reach and usefulness of the existing IRS website, IRS.Gov. To date, more than 20 entities nationally have established partnerships with the IRS through this program. The District of Columbia is the first city or state government to establish an IRS Tax Center.

The IRS Tax Center will supplement the small business checklists and guides already available on the District Government website’s Business Resource Center (BRC). Over 18,000 businesses and individuals visit the BRC every month for information about starting a business, taxes, licensing, and local business events.

To learn more about this option and how it can help your business, go to brc.dc.gov/tax/irssummary.asp.
