Looking for the IRS Site? It's Not IRS.com

If you're starting to think about your taxes and searching online for the official site of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, make sure you don't click on IRS.com by mistake.

The IRS, like many U.S. government sites, uses the ".gov" top-level domain name, and can be found at IRS.gov.

But IRS.com isn't affiliated with the government at all, despite the misleading "IRS Tax Center" title in the browser bar and tab. The banner headline on the homepage also suggests an official association: "US Tax Center – Tax Information You Can Trust."

So remember, if you're looking for the IRS, the official website is http://www.irs.gov.
