Tax tips featured on IRS YouTube channel

April 16, 2012 at 3:53 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, April 16 (UPI) -- U.S. tax collectors have turned to YouTube to teach procrastinators how to file their federal tax returns.

The Los Angeles Times reported Monday the IRS has posted several videos on the popular Internet time sponge, including one titled "Last-minute tax tips -- 2012."

In the video, an IRS employee tells the audience: "Please, don't worry. You still have options."

Currently, the IRS YouTube channel has 54 instructional videos. The agency said it is the fourth most-viewed government channel on YouTube.

The tax deadline this year is Tuesday since the 15th fell on a Sunday and because Monday was Emancipation Day, a public holiday observed in Washington.

That means, there is still time to get in a little YouTube before the deadline strikes.
