The Internal Revenue Service has fully embraced the 21st century. Now, all tax-paying citizens can learn about the stimulus package incentives contained in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“ARRA”) in a simple, yet very tech savvy manner. The IRS has released a series of YouTube videos and podcasts. YouTube topics include the First-Time Home Buyer Credit, Unemployment Compensation, Charitable Contributions, and Tax Scams. The videos are also offered in Spanish and American Sign Language. Podcasts focus on the tax credits available under the ARRA. Taxpayers may subscribe to these podcasts through i-Tunes or they may download them directly from the IRS’s website.
