IRS to help taxpayers Saturday
Almost 100 offices nationwide will be open to answer questions and help with returns. We also have tips on other sources of free tax-return help.
Tax day is fast approaching. This year you get a few extra days, but you might want to start working on your tax return now to get it sent to the Internal Revenue Service by the April 18 deadline.
If you need some help, the IRS will have offices open this Saturday throughout the country to provide free help to taxpayers. The offices will be open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time Saturday, March 26.
"We are opening our doors on these Saturdays to help taxpayers who may not have a chance to seek assistance during the work week," IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said in a news release. "If taxpayers need help preparing their tax returns or have an account question, we encourage them to visit one of our open houses."
IRS workers will be on hand at nearly 100 offices Saturday to answer questions and help with tax returns.
Our colleague Kay Bell has put together a whopping list of all the places taxpayers can get free help during tax season at Don't Mess With Taxes.
She reminds us that many local organizations stand ready to help with tax returns:
You also should check with your local community service organizations, churches and bar association and accounting association chapters in your town. Many of these groups offer tax assistance throughout filing season.
She has a link to state tax offices, with deadlines for filing and information about requirements.
