I’m proud to announce the launch of Cambios en la Reforma de Impuestos, the Spanish-language version of the Taxpayer Advocate Service’s recently launched Tax Reform Changes website. With the tax season quickly approaching, I want to make sure as many taxpayers as possible understand how the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act law may change their tax filings and help them plan for these changes.
The Cambios en la Reforma de Impuestos website includes line-by-line explanations and scenarios to describe how the new changes, that took effect for 2018, will be reflected on individual tax returns filed in early 2019. It’s designed so everyone can easily see what items have and have not changed. Plus, it offers links to more detailed information on IRS.gov and will help taxpayers in navigating the IRS website. Visitors can also sign up to receive email alerts in both Spanish and English when new information is added to the site.
If you, your business or association is involved in helping Spanish-speaking taxpayers understand federal income taxes and the ramifications of tax law changes, I encourage you to visit our new site and then help us spread the word about Cambios en la Reforma de Impuestos. The Taxpayer Advocate Service website has detailed information and products, in Spanish, related to the new site, along with a Spanish language article that describes this site and its importance, that can help you promote this valuable resource to your clients.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes significant changes to our tax laws. It’s important to understand how those changes might affect you or your clients so visit our site and sign up for the email alerts.
