Accessible 2017 Tax Publications and Videos Available from the Internal Revenue Service

We are happy to report that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) again makes accessible documents, videos, and other resources available for people with disabilities. The IRS provided the following article:
IRS Services for People with Disabilities
Hundreds of accessible federal tax forms and publications are available for download from the IRS Accessibility Web pages. Visit IRS.gov and select the Forms & Pubs tab to access the Accessible Forms and Pubs link.  You can choose from large-print, text, accessible PDFs, e-Braille, or HTML formats that are compatible when used with screen readers and refreshable Braille displays. The IRS also provides videos in American Sign Language with the latest tax information and has a dedicated ASL YouTube Channel that houses the videos.
IRS Tax Return Preparation Help is Available       
People who are unable to complete their tax returns because of a physical disability or are age 60 or older may get assistance through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) or Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs. You can find a nearby VITA or TCE location by using the available locator tools or calling 1-800-906-9887. Publication 907, Tax Highlights for Persons with Disabilities, explains the tax implications of certain disability benefits and other issues, and is available at www.IRS.gov.
To reach the IRS accessibility site directly, go to https://www.irs.gov/uac/irs-gov-accessibility.
The IRS also provided the following YouTube playlist of videos in American Sign Language. The video that begins when you open the link describes all of the accessibility information in even more detail. Watch any or all of the videos in this playlist at https://youtu.be/el-xueE-ZDY?list=PL634968897EAEA4FD
We hope these resources make the tax preparation process easier for you.
