WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is joining national TV network Telemundo in a special one-hour tax program for Spanish-speaking taxpayers on Sunday, Jan. 24.
The program, “Los Impuestos y Usted” (“Taxes and You”), will air at:
- 3:00 p.m. Eastern time
- 2:00 p.m. Central time
- 2:00 p.m. Mountain time
- 3:00 p.m. Pacific time
Consult your local listings for exact times.
“Los Impuestos y Usted” will focus on a variety of tax issues. In addition to topics such as who must file a tax return and who can claim deductions and benefits, the program focuses on the Earned Income Tax Credit – a valuable credit that unfortunately one in four eligible taxpayers overlook. Workers with incomes under $48,279 could receive larger refunds if they qualify.
In addition, the program will explain Free File, a service that allows many taxpayers to file their taxes online at no cost. The show will also discuss other kinds of free assistance available from the IRS.
Mónica Noguera, host for many of Telemundo’s special programs, will present the IRS program, which features in-studio interviews with IRS tax experts.
