The Internal Revenue Service and the American Bar Association (ABA) operate a joint project to help young people learn about the federal tax system.

TAXinteractive (TAXi) is an electronic learning laboratory available on the Internet at http://www.irs.gov/taxi.

"TAXi helps young people learn about their tax obligations through a program they can relate to," said Charles O. Rossotti, Commissioner of Internal Revenue. "We think it’s an exciting addition to our Web site, and we appreciate the assistance of the ABA in helping make it happen."

TAXi is in an easy-to-read, teen-friendly format with various scenarios and a dictionary of tax terms. A "teachers’ toolkit" provides teachers with resources to help integrate lessons about taxes in classroom settings. The program also includes instructions for downloading and installing Adobe Acrobat 3.0, which is required to view and print several of the items in the "toolkit."

"TAXi will help improve tax literacy among our young people," said Phillip Mann,

Chair of the ABA Section of Taxation. "It will help them in many situations -- day-to-day activities, planning to buy a car, filing taxes electronically, and even figuring out how much money they can expect to take home from a summer job."
