Main Navigation Bar

The navigation bar provides several ways to access information:

The navigation bar also has links for search help, comments, and infomation about how Tax Map is created.

Navigating a Topic Page

A topic page is the "home page" for a topic. The middle of the topic page has links to products that contain information about the topic. The right side of the topic page has links to related topic pages.

Each topic page contains a "contextual menu" that is located below the topic heading and any synonyms it may have. The "contextual menu" links to the groups of documents that are relevant to the topic. There may be groups of forms, publications, faqs, tax topics, and articles on web sites. The "contextual menu" will only list those groups that are available for the particular topic. Select the product group of interest and link down the page to that group.

Navigating Publication Text Pages

Each text page has the following navigation features:

Previous Page | Table of Contents | Index | Next Page - Each publication is chunked into standard units for screen presentation. At the top of each page, links are available to allow users to page between previous and next units of information, and to access the table of contents and index for that publication.

Topic links - When available, topic links will appear next to publication headings on text pages. Selecting the topic will link the user to its topic page. If blue arrows appear on either side of the topic, it denotes that there are multiple occurrences of that topic within Tax Map. Selecting an arrow will take the user to the next or the previous occurrence of the topic.
