Among the information and resources available on the website are:
- Small business forms and publications;
- Online applications for an employer identification number (EIN);
- Employment tax information–including federal income tax, Social Security and Medicare taxes,
- FUTA, and self-employment tax;
- Tax-related news that could affect small businesses;
- Small business educational events;
- IRS videos for small businesses; and
- The A-Z Index for Business.
Other resources available on the IRS website include a virtual small business tax workshop for learning about federal tax obligations, and a 12-month tax calendar for small business taxpayers with information on general business taxes, electronic filing and paying options, retirement plans, business publications and forms, and common tax filing dates.
