Purchase Card Program (Micropurchases)
The Internal Revenue Service currently spends approximately $4 million per month through individual purchase card transactions. Approximately 4,300 IRS field employees use the purchase cards to make purchases up to $3,000. These purchases, made throughout all IRS offices within the United States, cover a myriad of services, supplies, and equipment.
It is IRS policy not to give out the names or phone numbers of the purchase cardholders due to disclosure issues.

Purchase Card Listing Information
In order to assist small businesses in marketing to the IRS cardholders, the IRS Small Business Program Office has implemented a purchase card listing for each area operations branch. These listings are published quarterly on the IRS intranet and are readily accessible by all cardholders. If your company currently accepts the Government purchase card, please forward the following information for inclusion in upcoming listings: (1) company name, address, phone number, and fax number, (2) point of contact for credit card sales, (3) short product summary (i.e., what do you sell?), (4) type of business (i.e., small, HubZone small, 8(a), small disadvantaged, woman-owned small, veteran-owned small, and/or service disabled veteran-owned small business), and (5) any other information you may want to provide about the company (i.e., years in business, delivery terms, etc.).
Information above should be forwarded to: LaTonya Bowman via email with a Subject Line: Purchase Card List. Your information will then be edited and placed in the next available quarterly listing based on your location. You will receive an electronic copy of the listing upon publication. A sample of the required format for the listing is attached.
Please note that inclusion in the listing is not a guarantee of business with the IRS. Inclusion is a mechanism to have your company information posted in an Intranet document that can be viewed by IRS cardholders. Cardholders are free to select any company from the listing or companies found via other means, i.e., local sources, Internet, etc.
The latest version of the Purchase Card Listings are linked below for information and use in preparing your company information. If your company is already listed, but changes are needed, please send an e-mail with required changes to LaTonya Bowman.
