Income Tax Deadline

Income tax deadline Publication 850 (EN/SP) - Introductory Material Table of Contents Introduction Introduction This glossary is developed by the Tax Forms and Publications Division of the Internal Revenue Service, in consultation with the Translation Commission of the North American Academy of the Spanish Language (Comisión de Traducciones de la Academia Norteamericana de la Lengua Española) and with the Graduate Program in Translation of the University of Puerto Rico (Programa Graduado en Traducción de la Universidad de Puerto Rico). Income tax deadline Its purpose is to establish high standards for the quality of language usage, to promote uniformity in language usage, and to minimize the risk of misinterpretation of Spanish-language materials issued by the Service. Income tax deadline To meet the needs of the largest segment of taxpayers whose primary language is Spanish, the Service has issued certain Spanish-language materials. Income tax deadline Problems arise, however, because there is some variation in tax terminology used in Spanish-speaking countries. Income tax deadline Also, invention and compromise are involved in selecting words and phrases to describe certain tax concepts that have no precise equivalent in the Spanish language or legal tradition. Income tax deadline To help resolve these problems, a group of United States, Spanish, and Spanish-American academicians, professors, lawyers, accountants, translators, and tax law specialists developed this glossary. Income tax deadline Their long and varied experience with the tax systems in their own, and other countries, gives assurance of reliability. Income tax deadline The criteria used for words in this glossary are: consistency of usage with other governmental agencies, Spanish writing style for the tax forms and publications, and words relating to Accounting, Economics, Finance, Law, Technology and its related fields. Income tax deadline Any issuance containing language consistent with this glossary should be reasonably satisfactory for purposes of general guidance regarding the rights and obligations of taxpayers. Income tax deadline It is not intended, however, that any term in this glossary should be understood to change the meaning of any provisions of law, regulations, or any other authoritative precedent. Income tax deadline A periodic review is made to determine whether any additions, deletions, or revisions are needed. Income tax deadline Some of the terms listed are identified by the abbreviation “P. Income tax deadline R. Income tax deadline ” These terms are for use in tax forms and publications intended for circulation exclusively in Puerto Rico.
