Tax stuff I think is interesting. It is either copied from my primary blog on forbes.com http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterjreilly/ or stuff that I did not put there because being on forbes is a good gig and they have, you know, standards. Also some guest posts.

IRS Promotes its Social Media Resources
Originally Published on forbes.com on January 8th,2012
One of the first things to come out of the IRS this year is this little item touting its social meda material. It is short enough to reproduce in full, with a couple of comments thrown in.
Get Ready for the Tax Filing Season with IRS Social Media
IRS YouTube Video: Connect With the IRS
FS-2012-3, January 2012
The Internal Revenue Service uses social media tools and platforms to share the latest information on tax changes, initiatives, products and services. These social media platforms include the IRS2Go phone application, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and iTunes. A listing is available on IRS.gov.
The IRS plans to offer even more features for its IRS2Go phone app for the 2012 filing season. The app is available for the iPhone and Android, and it’s free. Stay tuned for future updates.
The IRS has short and informative YouTube videos on tax related topics in English, Spanish and American Sign Language (ASL). The channels have received nearly 2.2 million views. The main English channel is the fourth most-viewed federal government YouTube channel.
[There are issues with some of them, though. Here is one about a web resource to help teachers teach about taxes. It sounded very interesting, but when I tried to follow the instructions, it said the page did not exist. Maybe it's just me.]
