Your Media Preference for IRS Communications

No longer are communications restricted to written notices. You may now request to receive communications from the IRS in large print, Braille, audio (MP3), plain text files, or Braille ready file. You make your selection on new IRS Form 9000, Alternative Media Preference. This form is attached to Form 1040 or 1040-SR. If an alternative communications format is selected, you’ll also receive the standard print copy.

Note: Once you make a selection for an accessible format, but want to limit communications to the standard print copy, you’ll need to file a new form and select “standard print” to cancel a prior selection.
