Designed with both government officials and members of the public in mind, the new website provides users with:

  • A simple home page, with quick links to the department’s most-used applications and pages, upcoming events, and recent news.
  • Combined navigation, organized by function such as tax filing and status checking, policy information, and key areas of the department, as well as topics such as taxes or permits and licensing.
  • Updated tax guidance, with clearly presented information in a single location by tax types.
