Accessible Forms & Publications

 

The Internal Revenue Service offers content in a variety of file formats to accommodate people who use assistive technology such as screen reading software, refreshable Braille displays, and voice recognition software. We have prepared hundreds of tax forms and publications that can be downloaded or viewed online in text-only, Braille ready files, browser-friendly HTML, accessible PDF, and large print.

Our PDF tax forms comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1; however, the IRS does not advise filling out forms on mobile devices.

Latest enhancements to IRS accessibility services

Beginning January 31, 2022, taxpayers can complete Form 9000, Alternative Media Preference PDF, to choose to receive their - IRS tax notices in Braille, large print, audio or electronic formats. This includes notices about additional taxes or penalties owed. Taxpayers can include the completed form with their tax return, mail it as a standalone form to the IRS or call 800- 829-1040 to elect their preferred format.

In addition, IRS established an Accessibility Helpline to answer questions related to current and future products in alternative media formats (i.e. Braille, large print, audio, etc.) and accessibility services available to taxpayers with print disabilities. Taxpayers who need accessibility assistance can call 833-690-0598. Assistance for multilingual taxpayers is also available on the helpline via the Over-the-Phone Interpreter service. The new helpline does not have access to taxpayers’ IRS accounts. Those needing help with tax law, refunds or other account-related issues, should visit the Let Us Help You page.
