TALLAHASSEE —Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink is encouraging Florida's Spanish-speaking residents to tune in to the national television network Telemundo this Sunday, January 28, for a special one-hour tax program with the Internal Revenue Service.  
 
The program, "Los Impuestos y Usted" ("Taxes and You"), will air at 3:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time and 2:30 p.m. Central and Mountain Time.

"Los Impuestos y Usted" will focus on a variety of tax issues, including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for low-income taxpayers, electronic filing (IRS e-file), Free File and tips on how to choose a tax preparer.  IRS experts also will discuss taxpayers' rights and how to obtain help with tax questions.

"I appreciate Telemundo sharing this timely information with viewers," CFO Sink said.  "I encourage residents to tune in and take notes so they can be sure that they are paying no more than their fair share."
