Tax help, that is. The IRS has invested some time and money in keeping people off their backs so they can deal with their form* problems by updating and upgrading their online resources for tax payers.

Read more here. Or, check out IRSe Publication 17 for yourself.

Like accountingweb, we here at OffAssist want to remind you that the only place for legit IRS info on the web is their website, IRS.GOV. Sites that look similar but end in anything else (.com, .net, .info, et cetera) are scams, so make sure the .gov is there before you ask questions and remember the real IRS will never ask for personal information over the web or via email unless they have already been in touch with you regarding a specific issue.
