January 15, 2009 – IR-2009-006
WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service will join national TV network Telemundo in an informative tax program aimed at Spanish-speaking taxpayers on Sunday, Jan. 25.

- 3:00 p.m. Eastern, Central and Pacific Time
- 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time
Consult your local listings for exact times.
"Los Impuestos y Usted" will focus on a variety of tax issues, including topics such as who must file a tax return and who can claim deductions and benefits.
In addition the program will highlight the Earned Income Tax Credit, which is a sometimes overlooked but valuable tax credit that can make taxpayers lives a little easier. Working families with incomes under $41,646 could receive larger refunds if they qualify for the EITC.
The program also will explain Free File, a service that allows many taxpayers to file their taxes online at no cost. The show will also discuss other kinds of free assistance available from the IRS.
Mónica Noguera, host for many of Telemundo’s special programs, will present the IRS program, which features in-studio interviews with IRS tax experts.
