Here are five reasons to visit IRS.gov this summer.
Get information about the numerous tax breaks made available earlier this year in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Calculate the right amount of withholding allowances on your W-4. The IRS Withholding Calculator will help you ensure that you don’t have too much or too little income tax withheld from your pay.
Search for charities. Search Publication 78, Cumulative List of Organizations, to find out if an organization is exempt from federal taxation and, if so, how much of your contributions to that organization are tax deductible.
Get information about careers at the IRS. No matter what your professional specialty, the IRS can offer you a variety of full-time career or seasonal job opportunities.
Get tax forms and publications. You can view, download and order tax forms and publications any hour of the day or night.
Remember that for the genuine IRS Web site be sure to use .gov. Don’t be confused by internet sites that end in .com, .net, .org or other designations instead of .gov.
The address of the official IRS governmental Web site is http://www.irs.gov/.
