Take a Peek at New IRS Web Site

The new IRS Web site is not yet up and running, but the prototype is available for observation and comment.

The Digital Daily will be replaced with a new, more austere design. The new www.irs.gov greets the user with an organized list of links for easy navigation through the maze of tax law and resources.

Links to IRS information will remain the same as on the previous IRS web site, so any bookmarks you might have set to IRS information will still work when the new site goes live.

The new look employs a blue-on-blue color scheme, which appears professional and dignified. The new navigation system is easy to follow enables the user to quickly see exactly what resources are available.

The former IRS Web Site, the Digital Daily, is still fully functional, and will remain so while the IRS is putting the finishing touches on the new site. The IRS has not provided a launch date for the new site, but has indicated that it will be updated and activated during the course of the coming year.
