Paying Taxes 101

Taxes – What You Need to Know – Responsibilities & Benefits!

The IRS and the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) worked together to develop the Tax Toolkit. TAS is an independent organization within the IRS whose employees assist taxpayers who are experiencing economic harm, who are seeking help in resolving tax problems that have not been resolved through normal channels, or who believe that an IRS system or procedure is not working as it should.

The online toolkit, both English and Spanish versions, is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and makes it easier for you to:

Understand basic tax information
Determine if you need an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN)
Learn about special tax credits
Help prevent identity theft
Understand why it’s important to follow the tax laws
Learn more about the tax-related issues of starting a small business
Understand your options when you owe the IRS money
Get your tax refund quickly and fairly
