IRS Publication 17: An overview of common tax issues

SPOKANE, Wash. - Are you facing a lot of different tax questions this year?

IRS experts have pulled together an overview of common tax issues in one convenient place - Publication 17, Your Federal Income Tax. This publication contains helpful information for individual taxpayers.

This year for the first time, the IRS will issue a Spanish language version of this popular publication.
 
The on-line version of Publication 17 contains electronic links that make finding your answer simple.  Both the downloadable PDF and on-line 2008 Publication 17 have over 900 hyperlinks.  These hyperlinks allow users to immediately go to other parts of the publication, reducing searches to just a few clicks.

From stock sales to student loans, this nearly 300-page publication holds the answers to many of your questions:

  • Need help with a Roth IRA? Try Chapter 17 for Individual Retirement Arrangements.

  • Do you have a new child in the house? See Chapter 34 for the Child Tax Credit.

  • Are you selling stock for the first time? Check Chapter 16 for reporting capital gains. If you're unloading losers, reporting capital losses is there, too.

  • Do you need to report the profit on your home sale? See Chapter 15 for some good news. Generally, if you qualify you only need to report the sale of your home if your gain is more than $250,000 ($500,000 if married filing a joint return).

The best part about Publication 17? It's free. To get a copy, visit the IRS Web site or call 800-TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).
