Taxpayers can subscribe to three different IRS YouTube channels to get tax information in a short and easy to understand format and see community updates from the agency.

The IRS YouTube channels are:

Here are just a few of the helpful videos:

  • View account information – This video shows people how to set up an online account to view their tax information on
  • Recovery Rebate Credit (obsolete) – This video explains why eligible people should claim the recovery rebate credit if they didn't get any or the full amounts of the first two Economic Impact Payments.
  • Interactive Tax Assistant (obsolete) – This video introduces people to the Interactive Tax Assistant, an online tool that provides answers to several tax law questions specific to an individual's circumstances. Based on their input, the tool can determine if a person has to file a tax return, their filing status, if they can claim a dependent, if the type of income they have is taxable, if they're eligible to claim a credit or if they can deduct expenses.

The channels also offer playlists on specific tax topics, including ones for tax professionals and small business taxpayers.
