Partners and Stakeholders

The Internal Revenue Service is committed to establishing a more customer-focused structure to better meet the needs of American taxpayers. The Small Business and Self-Employed (SB/SE) Division was formed to address the specific needs of small businesses and self-employed individuals. Within SB/SE, our Stakeholder Liaison office has been instrumental in designing, developing, and delivering educational products and services focused on small business taxpayers' needs. Furthermore, you will find that the IRS Web site covers topics from all areas of IRS.

Fair Enforcement Assistance - Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA)
The National Ombudsman is authorized by Congress to hold hearings, help and assist small entities, including small business owners, small government entities, and non-profit organizations when they have experienced unfair or excessive enforcement action by a federal agency. Unfair or excessive federal regulatory enforcement actions may include excessive audits, investigations, fines, penalties, threats, retaliation, harassment, rude or unfair treatment by a federal agency. The SBA National Ombudsman rates federal agencies, reports annually to Congress and may refer cases to the Inspector General. Small business owners may submit a comment to the National Ombudsman online and submit it by fax (202) 481-5719 or mail; or phone (888) 734-3247. You can also view upcoming events on the calendar of events.
