IRS Publishes Foreign Tax Guides

by Leroy Baker, Tax-News.com, New York

05 November 2007


The US Internal Revenue Service has announced the availability of five new publications to help foreign-language communities understand federal tax forms and publications that are written in English.

The new glossaries of tax terminology will help to meet increased demand for tax-related resources in languages other than English.

The five new publications are new versions of Publication 850 for Chinese (simplified), Chinese (traditional), Korean, Russian and Vietnamese. A Spanish version was previously available.

The Virtual Translation Office of the IRS helped create these glossaries of tax terminology to help taxpayers and the professionals who assist them. The publications were developed in cooperation with professional translators and editors to establish uniformity in language usage in IRS tax products, and to function as reference materials for these products.

Although the publications are not legal documents, the IRS hopes that these glossaries will be useful to members of the US Chinese, Korean, Russian and Vietnamese communities in understanding IRS documents and clarifying tax-related issues.
