In support of National Small Business Week, the Internal Revenue Service will issue numerous online materials that focus on getting small business owners the information they need to comply with filing and paying requirements.
Here are some of the covered topics:
- Employer Responsibilities
- Employee vs. Independent Contractor
- Work Opportunity Tax Credit
- Employment Tax Compliance

During Small Business Week, the IRS also encourages employers to help get the word out about the advanced payments of the Child Tax Credit. Employers have direct access to their employees, who may receive this credit. More information on the Advanced Child Tax Credit is available on IRS.gov. The website has tools employers can use to help spread the word.
