BIZ BYTES : SITE OF THE WEEK.

TAXING DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN: In an annual symbol that ends holiday revelry and marks a return to reality, the Internal Revenue Service on Friday began mailing out its 1997 federal income tax forms. Most people should get their packages by this week. This year's tax forms vary only slightly from the 1996 version. Most of the major changes in the tax code incorporated in the balanced budget deal worked out between President Clinton and Congress last year don't go into effect until the 1998 tax year.

The IRS said this year it is expanding its free telephone assistance service to 16 hours a day, six days a week. That service, which received 100 million calls last year, is available at 1-800-829-1040.

UNCLE SAM.COM: Do you have questions about that tax form coming your way? Who better to ask then Uncle Sam himself. Loads of information, including procedures for filing by home computer, can be obtained through the IRS website at www.irs.ustreas.gov.
