Tax Guidance

At the Iowa Department of Revenue, we continually seek ways to maximize our resources to provide our core services and perform our core functions efficiently.

If you have questions or feedback on a tax topic that needs further clarity or explanation, please submit a request for guidance. The Department periodically reviews submissions to determine the topics most in need of further clarity and explanation. Guidance could come in the form of rulemaking, online publications, communication blasts, or any combination of these.

The goal of focusing our resources on topics and information with broad interest is to provide guidance that can resolve common, yet complex, questions. Formal processes for requesting Rulemaking and Declaratory Orders are also available. To review the requirements for those processes, click the links below.
