WASHINGTON - With U. S. Federal income tax returns due June 15, Internal Revenue Service assistors will visit 110 cities in 73 countries throughout the world during the 1990 filing period to bring tax help to thousands of U.S. taxpayers living overseas. IRS taxpayer assistors traveling overseas help individuals get tax forms and free publications, answer tax questions, help prepare tax returns and assist with account problems.

The schedule of overseas assistance visits for the 1990 tax filing season is announced. In addition, IRS has full-time, year-round staff assigned to U. S. embassies in Bonn, Caracas, London, Manila, Mexico City, Nassau, Ottawa, Paris, Riyadh, Rome, Sao Paulo, Singapore, Sydney and Tokyo.

Volunteers, trained under the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program, are also available to help others prepare their tax returns at many U. S. military installations throughout the world. IRS also sponsors a variety of outreach programs including group presentations and seminars on general and specialized tax topics.
