It’s Easy to Keep In Touch with the IRS


Like any other government agency the IRS is constantly releasing pertinent information. The IRS releases a wealth of information for tax payers on a regular basis but they also do the same for tax preparers. As education regulations for preparers continue to become more stringent, it is always a good idea to stay as up to date as possible. Official communication is far from the only way to achieve this. Via less conventional methods tax preparers can stay up to date on a day by day and sometimes minute by minute basis. Take a look at these helpful communication bridges to the IRS courtesy of the tax pros section of IRS.gov.
