You don’t need to be a tax expert to run a business, but knowing the basics about taxes can help you run it better. You’ll find the basics and much more at the IRS.gov Small Business and Self-Employed Tax Center.
Whether you’re new to a business or been with it awhile, the Tax Center can help. You can apply for an Employer Identification Number, get a form or learn about employment taxes. The Center also includes these resources:
• IRS Video Portal. Watch helpful videos and webinars on many topics. Find out about filing and paying business taxes or about how the IRS audit process works. Under the ‘Businesses’ tab, look for the ’Small Biz Workshop.’ Watch it when you want to learn the basics about small business taxes.
• Online Tools and Educational Products. The list of Small Business products includes the Tax Calendar for Small Businesses and Self-Employed. Install the IRS CalendarConnector tool and access important tax dates and tips right from your smart phone or computer, even when you’re offline.
• Small Business Events. Find out about free IRS small business workshops and other events planned in your state.
