Many immigrant and English as a Second Language (ESL) taxpayers are unaware of their taxpayer rights and responsibilities, often unaware of different benefit programs that they may be entitled to, or how to pursue relief.  Language and cultural barriers often exacerbate accessing these services.  This panel discusses tax issues faced by many immigrant and ESL taxpayers so that they can take charge and lead change.
