The IRS continues its efforts to expand ways to communicate to taxpayers who prefer to get information in other languages.
For the first time ever, the agency has posted to IRS.gov a Spanish language Form 1040 and the related instructions.
The new Form 1040 Schedule LEP, in English and Spanish, with instructions available in English and 20 other languages, can be filed with a tax return by those taxpayers who prefer to communicate with the IRS in another language. They can indicate their language of preference for IRS-issued written communications or change their language of preference.
IRS Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax, has been streamlined for tax year 2020 and is now available in Spanish, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Vietnamese, Korean and Russian.
