Tax Information

Internal Revenue Service
The official site of the IRS. Contains important federal tax information, forms, and publications. Publication 17 is a yearly reference work published by the IRS that "details taking advantage of a wide range of tax-saving opportunities, such as the American opportunity credit for parents and college students, and the child tax credit and expanded earned income tax credit for low- and moderate-income workers." It's 288 pages long, so download times might differ depending on Internet speed.
