Facts and Forms

From the website:

411SmallBusinessFacts.com is a searchable data base of approximately 2,000 facts about American small businesses and their owners (or managers) produced by the NFIB Research Foundation. The Foundation developed this information from telephone surveys of small employers – those employing from one person in addition to the owner(s) to 250. Data collection began in 2001 and continues through the present. The data are gathered regularly for a series of publications known as NFIB’s National Small Business Poll. New Poll data are added to 411SmallBusinessFacts.com eight times annually. The small business facts presented in the data base address a wide range of subject matter and include material which typically cannot be found in other sources.

You can do a quick search, but it's easier to search by keyword, category, or poll.

From HillSearch.org:

If you're looking for a centralized location to access government forms, try Forms.gov. Forms.gov provides access to a catalog of business and citizen federal forms needed to interact with the Federal Government. Forms for both voluntary and regulatory interaction with the Federal Government are included.

Forms.gov includes over 5,400 forms, with new and updated forms being added daily. Users can search for forms by agency, form name, form number, or keyword. If you don't find the form you need, try visiting the applicable agency's form page (links provided at http://www.forms.gov/bgfPortal/nav.do?oa=agencyForms).

Forms.gov also identifies some of their frequently accessed forms, such as: tax forms, small business forms, social security forms, FEMA forms, and more. Try it today at http://www.forms.gov/

So I did. I think it's most useful when people have no idea what bureaucracy they should be dealing with. Still, I discovered that Schedule C is a form not only of the IRS but of FAR as well. BTW, W2 generated no response, but W 2 got me information about W-2 IRS forms.
