“Los Impuestos y Usted” will focus on a variety of tax issues, ranging from the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for low-income working taxpayers to electronic filing (IRS e-file) and from Free File to tips on choosing a tax preparer. IRS experts also will discuss taxpayers’ rights and how to obtain help with tax questions.
