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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
