Milpitas, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–January 10, 2007–Since the introduction of the Spanish online tax software in January 2006, eSmartTax has seen a steady and increasing interest among Latino taxpayers. Thousands have registered on the Spanish page and used eSmartTax through the 2006 tax- filing season.
But the IRS has bigger goals. It has partnered with providers like eSmartTax to get more Spanish speaking residents filing online. This year, eSmartTax is once again offering customized discount or free services and is working with community-based organizations, the Hispanic chamber and Latino legislators to get the word out. According to US Census data, almost 42 million (14.5%) of the US population is of Hispanic origin and the number is growing faster than all other groups. One third of that group is monolingual Spanish speaking.
eSmartTax provides an easy and convenient tool to help Spanish-speaking taxpayers prepare and file their tax returns electronically. And it supports the significant efforts of the IRS, California and other state tax agencies to serve this specific population. Electronic filing of tax returns is quick, accurate and convenient for the taxpayer while it reduces errors and processing costs significantly for the government.
