Extra Edition: Tax Return Filing.

Tax season will open this Monday, January 29, when the IRS will begin accepting paper and electronic tax returns. An expert shares Spanish-language tax preparation tools and shares tax tips to file on time and get a tax refund on the fast track. He also discusses tax changes and trends that may impact Latino consumers when filing this year’s return.

Guest: Miguel Burgos, Certified Public Accountant, TurboTax, Kennewick, WA.

Child Tax Credit Expansion.

A recently announced bipartisan tax deal would ensure that tax breaks granted to large corporations are accompanied by additional benefits for children with an enhanced Child Tax Credit (CTC.) Under this plan, more lower-income families with multiple children would qualify for the full credit. Millions of Latino kids are expected to benefit from the credit. Anti-hunger and anti-poverty advocates applaud the proposal. What’s in the plan? What are its prospects in Congress?

Guests: Yamila Pino, Analist, Washington, DC; Luis Guardia, President, Food Research and Action Center, Washington, DC.
