WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today encouraged taxpayers interested in receiving helpful consumer tips this summer to get a jump-start on this year’s taxes by subscribing to the IRS Tax Tips email service.
Beginning July 1, the IRS will begin offering its Summertime Tax Tip series, which includes useful information in English and Spanish. Tax Tip subscribers will receive a new Tip via email three times a week during July and August. They will also get a Tax Tip each weekday during the tax filing season.
The IRS also issues Special Edition Tax Tips on important tax topics throughout the year.
IRS Tax Tips are plain language messages that are easy to understand and cover a wide range of topics. They often include links to helpful IRS.gov references, IRS YouTube videos and podcasts.
Summertime Tax Tip topics include:
- Phone scams.
- What to do if you receive an IRS notice.
- Check your withholding.
- Back-to-school – Education credit reminders.
- Identity theft.
- Moving expenses.
Taxpayers can sign up to receive IRS Tax Tips automatically through a free service on IRS.gov. From the Subscriptions link on the top right of the IRS website, choose “IRS Tax Tips” on the drop-down menu, and then click on “Subscribe.” Click on “more,” on the drop-down menu, to subscribe to the IRS Tax Tips in Spanish.
The IRS also has a number of other e-subscriptions to which taxpayers, tax professionals and others may subscribe to receive tax information via email from the IRS during the tax-filing season and the rest of the year.
