IRS Increases Language Options and Resources to Broaden Taxpayer Services, IR-2024-73

The IRS has continued to increase the amount of information available in multiple languages. This was part of the IRS transformation work under the Strategic Operating Plan, made possible by additional resources provided by the Inflation Reduction Act (P.L. 117-169). On IRS.govtaxpayers can select their preferred language from the dropdown menu at the top of the page, including Spanish, Vietnamese, Russian, Korean, Haitian Creole, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese. Additionally, the Languages page gives taxpayers information in 21 languages on key topics such as “Your Rights as a Taxpayer and “Who Needs to File.”

“The IRS is committed to making further improvements for taxpayers in a wide range of areas, including expanding options available to taxpayers in multiple languages,” said IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel. “Understanding taxes can be challenging enough, so it’s important for the IRS to put a variety of information on and other materials into the language a taxpayer knows best. This is part of the larger effort by the IRS to make taxes easier for all taxpayers,” he added.

If taxpayers cannot find the answers to their tax questions on, they can call the IRS or get in-person help at an IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center. Finally, hundreds of IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs have access to Over the Phone Interpreter services. VITA and TCE offer free basic tax return preparation to qualified individuals.
