FEB. 27—The IRS yesterday unveiled a new Web site designed to assist 45 million small-business and self-employed taxpayers.

The new site provides answers to basic tax questions, a calendar of important deadlines, industry-specific tax information for the construction and restaurant industries, and links to state tax information for all 50 states.

The site can be accessed through a button link, 'Small Business and Self-Employed Community,' on the IRS home page, at www.irs.gov.

'America's taxpayers want more clicks than bricks when dealing with the IRS,' said Joe Kehoe, commissioner of the Small Business/Self-Employed Division. 'They want to be able to get service and information when they want it and where they want it. That's the beauty of the new Web site.'

The IRS also plans to add new sections for individual filers, large corporations and tax-exempt organizations to its Web site.
