The Income Tax Forms 2012

Income tax forms 2012 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 forms 2012 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 forms 2012 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 forms 2012 Problems arise, however, because there is some variation in tax terminology used in Spanish-speaking countries. Income tax forms 2012 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.
