Business Income Tax – Business Compliance Burden Survey for Large Businesses, Calendar Year 2019


OMB #1545-2212

The Business Compliance Burden Survey is an important project that can benefit you and millions of other taxpayers.

We hear from businesses that amending returns and resolving issues with an already-filed return are time consuming and expensive. We are conducting a survey of randomly selected business taxpayers to learn more about those costs.

Responses from businesses will help us estimate of the amount of time and money all business entities spend amending returns or resolving issues with a filed return. We also use this information to learn how to reduce business taxpayer burden. All information provided will be used for research purposes only.

Only those businesses who are randomly selected may participate in the study. We estimate that it will take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete the survey. Participation is voluntary.

This survey is being conducted by Westat on behalf of the IRS. Sample copies of survey and IRS letter that invites taxpayers to participate in the survey are provided below.
