IRS Goes Viral?
Not exactly, but the IRS has introduced its own YouTube channel, along with an array of audio products to help taxpayers take advantage of tax benefits available in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. People can visit the site at www.youtube.com/irsvideos. The IRS YouTube channel caters to people of different backgrounds by offering videos in English, Spanish, and American Sign Language.
One video teaches viewers how to use the IRS Withholding Calculator. The IRS suggests that people who have more than one job or working spouses should especially check their withholding to ensure neither too much nor too little is being withheld. People can use the calculator to help determine if they should make adjustments. Another video of interest discusses the role of an interim appeals office and what taxpayers can expect from that office.
In another attempt to make the tax code more transparent to today’s filers, the IRS has also launched an ITunes podcast site featuring information about ARRA tax credits.
Unfortunately, the IRS tax whistleblower program has not been the subject of a YouTube video, at least not one produced by the IRS. However, interested tax fraud followers can go to YouTube and type in “irs whistleblower.” One of the results listed will be a video of an IRS Whistleblower Conference panel discussion starring K&M’s lead partner Brian Kenney.
Of course, if you would like to learn more about the IRS whistleblower program, there’s no need to look at YouTube at all. Call Kenney & McCafferty at 215-367-4333 for a free consult today.
