YouTube Tax Tips From the IRS
Taxpayers looking for advice might be only a YouTube clip away.
The Internal Revenue Service recently unveiled their YouTube channel, irsvideos. The 12 videos have information about claiming recovery rebate credits and other tax tips.
“It’s another way for us to get information out to taxpayers,” says Terry Lemons, a spokesperson for the IRS.
The videos are produced in-house and feature actual IRS employees. Mostly, they direct people to IRS.gov, which doesn’t currently host video. The aim is to make taxpayers aware of existing tax credits and direct them toward more information about those credits, Lemons says. They’re also available in Spanish and American Sign Language.
