Tax Tips: Tax information in Spanish

Spanish-speaking taxpayers have tons of resources available to them from the Internal Revenue Service. Many of the pages on the IRS website are translated into Spanish, including those linking to forms, publications, and instructions. Several pages about tax scams are also translated, and there are resources detailing tax credits too.

Taxpayers can also receive help in Spanish over the phone. The free TeleTax service is available in both Spanish and English, and the service offers help on over 150 tax topics. It can also be used to check on the status of your refund. TeleTax is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 800-829-4477.

Spanish-speaking IRS representatives are also available in person by calling the IRS customer service line at 800-829-1040.
