IRS Reminds Taxpayers of Alternative Media Center to Enhance Accessible Communication and Engagement

April 15, 2024, is the deadline to file our taxes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). In a move to increase accessibility for disabled taxpayers, the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) has released Tax Tip 2024-22 to remind us of the Alternative Media Center, a platform aimed at delivering information in a variety of formats and languages.

The IRS Alternative Media Center is designed to provide accessible products to individuals who use assistive technology such as screen readers, Braille displays, screen magnifying software, and voice recognition software. The IRS has posted hundreds of tax forms and publications in alternative formats and in Spanish.

Disabled taxpayers can get tax products by downloading accessible forms through their Accessible Forms and Publication page (https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/accessible-irs-tax-products).

Taxpayers can also call the IRS and request tax notices in accessible formats at 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
