There are many QSAs (Qualified Security Assessors) who will be only to happy to assist you in this, obviously they all cost money.  
The amount of work you will need to do depends on what level of merchant you are, I think level 1 is >$1bn revenue pa, level 2 is $500k--$1bn down to level 4.
A level 1 needs external assessment and audit, level 2 has a mixture of self and external assessment and audit.

The standards are updated each year, usually in October and PCI DSS compliance does require a lot of work (I work for a level 2 merchant)

What about some type of a checklist for the office.   What I need is a checklist of what do to and what not to do when it comes to information technology.

I'm not sure there is a simple checklist, the PCI DSS is pretty long and detailed and there are many many controls you need to adhere to.
I can give you a few starters:
Store credit card information in as few places as possibly, preferably none
Firewall all CC data from everything else
encrypt all CC traffic
Keep all systems patched up-to-date and if windows anti-virused up-to-date
Complex passwords that change regularly
2 factor authentication, especially for external access
audit log everything related to CC info and review logs for suspicious activity
