Where to Get Help with Taxes in Spanish

March 10, 2016 : Violeta Stauffer-Rodriguez – Past Contributor

Every tax season we get hundreds of questions, but many have answers only a few clicks away. That’s why we’ve prepared this guide for you. Whether you’ve already filed your tax return or still have to do it, you can find the answers to your questions regarding tax preparation with this list of resources.

If you already filed your tax return

Where is my refund? You can use this page or the IRS website where you can check the status of your refund. The site is updated every 24 hours, and is a great resource for you to use. Once your tax return is accepted, you can follow it through three stages: Return Received, Refund Approved and Refund Sent.

Keep in mind that regardless of how you filed your tax return, once the IRS has it, there is very little your tax pro can do to accelerate the process.

Amended returns: If you somehow missed some necessary information to be submitted in your return or you find an error, you should determine if you must file an amended return. The IRS offers tips about when to amend a return and when not to.

You can also follow up the status of your amended return through the site Where is my amended return?

IRS or H&R Block Spanish Customer Service: If any of these links don’t give you the answers to your questions, you can contact the IRS through the hotline 1-800-829-1040, and select option 2 to hear the menu in Spanish. You can also contact customer service at H&R Block 1- 800 HRBLOCK (1-800-472-5625) and select option 8 for attention in Spanish.

If you have not filed your return

Find a tax professional, office or manage your appointment through our tax office locator tool. You can find offices near you using your zip code, address or city, contact an office or just manage your appointment.

What should you bring the day of the appointment? We have a bilingual tax prep checklist that gives you a detailed guide of what you shouldn’t leave at home. And now with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), it is important to know how this law will impact your taxes. If you qualify for a hardship exemption, you will not have to pay the penalty for not having health insurance coverage, but you should talk to your tax professional. You will need also to verify if this year whether you need your 1095 form or not to file your taxes.
