Get to Know the New IRS.gov

We’ve heard your feedback about how difficult it can be to find information on IRS.gov and we want to make it easier for you. Based on your suggestions, we’ve updated our site to improve how we interact with you online. We still have more work to do but we hope you’ll take this journey with us as we begin a major transformation of IRS.gov. Below are some of the highlights. This is just the beginning.

Flexible Design

One of the most important updates we hope you’ll notice is that IRS.gov is more mobile friendly. This means our site will resize and adapt based on the size of your screen or the type of device you’re using, including your:

  • Smartphone
  • Laptop
  • Tablet
  • Desktop

Improved Content Organization

We’ve also improved the way our content is organized, highlighting the important tasks we know you come to IRS.gov to complete. You can find information about these top tasks when you click on the File, Pay, Refunds, Credits & Deductions, and Forms & Instructions links at the top of every page on IRS.gov. You can also hover your mouse over these links to reveal our new drop-down menus. Each drop-down menu groups popular content options to eliminate scrolling – giving you quicker access to the information you need. The drop-down menus aren’t available on mobile devices.

Additionally, we’ve added several links to the top of every page that will give you one-click access to our help page, news center, content in other languages, information for charities and nonprofits and resources for tax professionals.
