IRS Pronouncements--2019


Small Business Taxes & ManagementTM--Copyright 2019, A/N Group, Inc.

Note. The list below contains a synopses of revenue rulings, revenue procedures, notices, announcements and regulations beginning with those issued January 1, 2019. Because the IRS is no longer indexing the contents of the bulletins as in the past, we have created two indicies--this one is a complete list of all pronouncements. For an abbreviated list that is limited to those items we believe to be of interest to small to mid-sized business owners, their advisors, CPAs, enrolled agents, etc, go to IRS Pronouncements--2019--Short List. For a abbreviated, similar listing for prior years, go to:

We've included the IRB (Internal Revenue Bulletin) reference so you can find the full text on the IRS web site. We've tried to make the list as searchable as possible while keeping the descriptions short. Use the "find-in-page" or "find" feature of your browser (CTRL-F) to search this list. Be sure to try variations of keywords such as "activities" as well as "activity"; "depreciation" as well as "depreciate". The Applicable Federal Rate and interest rates on over- and underpayments are updated on our IRS Interest Rates page.
