TaxSlayer and MundoHispanico.com Announce Launch of TaxSlayer Latino, A Spanish-language Solution for Tax Filers
#YoLoHice Campaign Empowers U.S. Hispanics to Take Control of Their Personal Finances
ATLANTA, Ga., Feb. 4, 2019 — Today, TaxSlayer and MundoHispanico.com announced the arrival of TaxSlayer Latino, making the highest rated online tax preparation technology for ease of use available in Spanish. A collaboration between financial technology company TaxSlayer and publisher MundoHispanico.com, TaxSlayer Latino gives tax return filers the opportunity to save time and money by completing their return online and selecting a preparation experience tailored to their needs. The #YoLoHice (I Did it Myself) campaign commemorates the empowerment this convenient DIY option brings to U.S. Hispanics.
“Our priority for forty years has been to serve the Hispanic community and to help it flourish,” said MundoHispanico.com president and CEO Rene Alegria. “We’re confident that bringing TaxSlayer’s excellent product to our audience will turn an often times overwhelming process into a triumphant rite of passage, and ‘I don’t know’ to #YoLoHice.”
According to a national survey conducted by ThinkNow, only 28 percent of Spanish-dominant U.S. Hispanics who filed their tax return for 2017 completed their return online. The vast majority of U.S. Hispanics still rely on retail store tax preparation locations. Also in the survey, nearly 4 out of 10 Spanish-dominant U.S. Hispanics said improving their knowledge of and simplifying taxes would help alleviate some of the stress surrounding tax time.
Over the last two decades, TaxSlayer’s award-winning platform has helped fuel the migration from expensive retail tax preparation to an affordable and easy-to-use personalized tax filing experience. “Providing the U.S. Hispanic community with the means to do the same, in the language of their choice, is long overdue,” claims Brian Rhodes, president and CEO of TaxSlayer. “At TaxSlayer, we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with MundoHispanico.com for this game-changing launch.”
