It’s Tax Time Again!
With Lex the Service Dog.
[Audio Description:  A male service dog primps by licking his paw and smoothing his hair, he answers using American Sign Language]
LEX (Uses in American Sign Language): Lucy?
LUCY: Hi, Lex.  
I need your help.
LEX: Is that bulldog Bruno
chasing you again?
LUCY: No! Well, a little,
but never mind that.
My owner is visually  
impaired,  and she needs help
with her federal taxes.
LEX: You’ve come to the right dog!
I happen to know the IRS   
has lots of accessible  tax information
online for people with disabilities.  
Let me show you.  
Go to IRS.gov
and locate the
“Accessibility” link.
The Accessibility page
is your gateway
to hundreds of valuable
tax products:
in Braille and Text,   
Accessible PDF,  
Large Print,
and HTML.  
You can also find videos in
American Sign Language,
resources for veterans
with disabilities,
tax assistance,
information about  
tax benefits,
and more.  
LUCY:   WOW!  IRS.gov has
a lot of information!
But where should
my owner start?  
LEX:   I’d say the page of
Disability-Related Tax Products.  
Here you’ll find lots of   
helpful publications,
including “Tax Highlights  
for Persons with Disabilities.”  

She can access the latest information
through IRS social media.
There’s an IRS2Go app  
for smart phones;  
YouTube,  
Twitter,     
Facebook,   
and Tumblr.   
LUCY:   Lex, you’re terrific!
LEX:   Thanks.  
But what’s really terrific
is what the IRS provides people with disabilities.  
SOUND:  BARK!  BARK!  
LEX: Is that Bruno?
LUCY:   I’ve gotta go!  
See you at the dog park, Lex.  
Bye!
Oh! And thanks!

LEX: Tax time just might
be my favorite time of  year.
