IRS Tax Statistics


Spend a little time on the IRS web site checking out the tax data available for businesses, individuals, and nonprofits.

Business tax statistics include access to popular financial ratios for many industries, from cost of goods sold, expenditures, net income, assets, and more - typically organized by the North American Industrial Classification System and separated out by type of business structure (corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship, for instance).

You can even obtain individual income tax data by ZIP code--but the cost for this is $25 per state or $500 for the entire U.S.

And don't forget the nonprofit sector - in addition to statistics, here you can also download a "master list" of all tax-exempt organizations (nonprofits) in the US, or within a particular state.
