Good news! The IRS has further recognized the importance of education within the sharing economy and is now taking steps to offer specific information on tax issues facing workers.
The sharing economy is a special focal point for tax professionals during this summer’s IRS Nationwide Tax Forums. The Forums, which continue at various locations through mid-September, feature sessions with tax experts discussing the implications of the sharing economy for taxpayers.
The IRS, working in conjunction with the National Taxpayer Advocate, is taking steps to provide additional information to taxpayers, including the creation of the new Sharing Economy Resource Center on IRS.gov.
National GIG applauds these steps in furthering the accessibility and understanding of these important issues in this burgeoning work space.
