Interactive Tax Assistant (ITA)

The ITA tool is a tax law resource that takes you through a series of questions and provides you with responses to tax law questions.

  • Simply answer the questions and click the "Continue Button" to progress to the next question screen.
  • When you reach the response screen, you have the option to print the entire interview and the final response.

The tool is designed for use by taxpayers that were U.S. citizens or resident aliens for the entire tax year for which they are inquiring about.  If married, the spouse must also have been a U.S. citizen or resident alien for the entire tax year.  For information regarding nonresidents or dual status aliens, please see Publication 519, U.S. Tax Guide for Aliens.

The ITA tool covers a limited number of topics listed below. If you use the search feature and the requested topic is not covered by the tool, then you may be sent to the Tax Trails application. See our new topic lookup tool, the IRS Tax Map. To use the IRS Tax Map you’ll need to click a button that says "Leave IRS Site" Please continue! The IRS Tax Map contains official information; it’s just delivered from a different government website.

Using the Back button could cause an application error.


Conclusions are based on information provided by you in response to the questions you answered. Answers do not constitute written advice in response to a specific written request of the taxpayer within the meaning of section 6404(f) of the Internal Revenue Code.
