IRS Tax Map

Project category: Topic Maps driven web application
Project status: Productive


IRS Tax Map is a web presentation of an underlying “topic map”, best understood as a kind of subject-oriented database — a database designed to organize information around subjects of interest to taxpayers. Each subject has a “topic page” in Tax Map. This page provides central access to everything that Tax Map knows about the subject. It may have links to the topic pages of related topics, as well as to relevant forms, instructions, and publications.

The Tax Map production process adapts to the different kinds of information produced by the various groups at IRS, and incorporates input and feedback from IRS Tax Specialists and Tax Map users. Adherence to the principles of the ISO Topic Maps standard protects the value of this knowledge, allowing it to be exploited and maintained under changing conditions.

Topic Maps helped us not only to overcome the difficulties with information organization, but they also opened us a way for presenting the content in a structured and easy navigable way.
