Taxpayers with print disabilities can use Form 9000 to elect to receive written communications from the IRS in an accessible format. Once processed, the election will apply to written communications that would otherwise be sent in standard print format. This election may be changed by filing a new Form 9000 or calling 800-829-1040.
Making an election on this form will affect how the IRS provides you written communications. Written communications include formal letters and notices sent to individual taxpayers about their income tax account, as well as other notices and correspondence between taxpayers and the IRS. The IRS will
send a standard print copy of written communications in the same envelope as the alternative media copy. Generally, any attachments enclosed with the written communication will also be provided in the alternative media.
