Free filing help available during 'tax extravaganza' Fridays
With the April 17 tax deadline quickly approaching, some taxpayers can find help filing federal and state income tax returns during two "tax extravaganzas" on Friday and April 13.
Pio Decimo Center and The New Spirit Church are each holding free all-day tax preparation and filing events for those with low- to moderate-incomes, seniors, the disabled and those who speak limited English, the IRS said.
Tucsonans can file from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday at The New Spirit Church, 8701 Old Spanish Trail, or on April 13 at Pio Decimo Center, 848 S. Seventh Ave.
Volunteers will be on hand at each site and a tax law specialist will be available to help with correspondence and tax-related questions and services.
The IRS recommends that those who want to file bring photo IDs, Social Security cards or Individual Tax Indentification cards for all indiviudals included on the returns.
Filers should also bring wage and earning statements (W-2s), interest, dividend or miscellaneous income statements and mortgage interest paid statements (forms 1099 or 1098) and any other information on income expenses for 2011, the IRS said.
If filing jointly, spouses must both attend to sign required forms, the IRS said.
