Here are my notes on how to find what you need from the U.S. government websites.
Tax Code, Regulations and Official Tax Guidance
On the IRS website you can find links to the Internal Revenue Code, Treasury (Tax) Regulations and Other Official Guidance. It is located at irs.gov> Tax-Professionals> General Information> Code, Regs & Guidance> Tax-Code,-Regulations-and-Official-Guidance .
You will find a link to a brief primer on Understanding IRS Guidance to help you understand the difference between official IRS guidance versus non-precedential rulings or advice.
Also located on this page is a link to the master list of Internal Revenue Bulletins and Applicable Federal Rates (AFR).
The Legal Information Institute of Cornell University Law School (LII) - www.law.cornell.edu
LII is a not-for-profit group that has taken on the task of coordinating all US law accessible for free on the internet. Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII) plays a similar role in Canada.
The Legal Information Institute of Cornell University Law School is where you will find the United States Internal Revenue Code (IRC). It is located at law.cornell.edu> Legal Resources> U.S. Code> Text> Title 26 - Internal Revenue Code by subtitle. Subtitle C (SS3101-3510) is on employment taxes.
The Government Printing Office - www.gpo.gov/
The Government Printing Office website has a wealth of free electronic, official, published versions of government information. It contains legislative, executive and judicial resources.
You can click on the GPO Quick Link Ben's Guide to U.S. Government fo Kids (bensguide.gpo.gov) to learn the lay of the land. If you are curious about how laws are made, click on the Grade 9-12 link.
The wesite used to be called gpoaccess.gov. Since then it has been redesigned and is now just gpo.gov. Previously, it was organized into the three sections described below. I couldn't find how to get to these areas under the new website as everything just goes to GPO's Federal Digital System. It was much easier to follow the links in "Ben's Guide" under each section ... so I'm going to leave my information as follows because it is much more logically presented than their new site in my opinion.
The Legislative Branch resources is divided into four parts:
