Taxbreak '96

WASHINGTON - Taxbreak '96, the Internal Revenue Service's one-hour television assistance and information program for taxpayers, will air on most Public Television stations Sunday, February 18 at 3:00 p.m. (EST).

This program for the "do-it-yourself" taxpayer will highlight the choices taxpayers now have in filing their returns, including telephone and electronic filing. It also gives practical information on getting help and information -- including tax forms and publications -- via computer networks and CD ROM.

Bill Kurtis, executive producer and host of the PBS series "The New Explorers" hosts the show. Tax professionals will join Kurtis to answer many common tax questions and discuss filing options. In the spirit of the hands-on approach, Mary Ann Esposito, from the PBS Italian cooking show "Ciao Italia," and Norm Abram of "This Old House" and "The New Yankee Workshop" will introduce a number of common tax situations.
