Further Background

The Small Business Resource Guide CD-ROM is the result of a cross-government effort to provide new small businesses with information that will help them understand their federal tax requirements and other topics. The Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Small Business Administration are providing the leadership and resources to produce this new publication. The U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. Social Security Administration, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Environmental Protection Agency and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration also contributed to the content of the CD-ROM 2002.

Feedback received from small businesses, practitioners, Small Business Development Center/Business Information Center counselors, and IRS Taxpayer Education field coordinators has been overwhelmingly positive. Comments generally praise the CD as a real indication that the IRS is changing.
