IRS offices offer extra Saturday help

March 20, 2010 8:29:41 AM PDT
Four local IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers will be open to offer extra help to Houston area residents. This will give struggling taxpayers more opportunity to work directly with IRS employees to resolve issues they may be facing for the first time this year. During the expanded Saturday hours, taxpayers will be able to address economic hardship issues, make payment arrangements or get help claiming any of the special tax breaks in last year's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, including the:
  • 'B7 'B7Homebuyer tax credit
  • 'B7 American Opportunity Credit
  • 'B7 Making Work Pay credit
  • 'B7 Expanded Earned Income Tax Credit
  • Saturday, March 27, 2010
    9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

    WHERE:
    8701 S. Gessner
    12941 I45 N
    8876 I45 S
    1919 Smith Street

    In addition to IRS help, community organizations partner with the IRS. Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs assist people who earned $49,000 or less and Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) programs assist individuals 60 and over with their 2009 income tax return preparation and electronic filing. Many of these sites have Saturday hours while others offer assistance at various times during the week. To locate the partner sites in this area call 1-800-906-9887.
