ASL videos from IRS With Captioning

The IRS has a number of videos on Youtube that are very informative and beneficial for people who have low/ no vision, or hearing impairment. The videos feature IRS employees who are using ASL to provide information on tax filing, software for filing taxes, and other useful tips for tax payers, business owners, and leaders of non exempt organizations. All these videos have captions in English as well.

One very important piece of information they provide through one of these videos is that taxpayers can do their federal tax returns for free using tax software provided by companies in the Free File Alliance. Taxpayers in AL, AZ, AR, GA, ID, IA, KY, MI, MN, MO, MS, NY, ND, NC, OK, OR, RI, SC, VT, VA, WV can file their state tax returns for free as well. (Source).

If taxpayers do not have access to a computer, they can call 1- 800-829-1040 through relay service to get assistance with tax filing. For face to face assistance, taxpayers can contact their local IRS office (more info here).

Here is a video with some tips on what taxpayers should do if they do not receive their W2.

Here’s another video that has information on IRS’s iPhone and Android app (IRS2Go) to check refund status, and get other useful tax information.

  3. It's about time the government translated videos in ASL just like they do all the other languages.

  4. I can certainly really remember the time my manager took me aside and told me the Internal Revenue Service would definitely start garnishing my check. I was basically in disbelief. Every payday the income was seized and there was nothing I could do about it, since I neglected each of the letters and programs earlier. Save your money, and have your back taxes fixed today!
