City Announces Free Tax Preparation Assistance For Low-Income Residents
The City of Alexandria is once again offering free tax preparation assistance to low-income residents during the 2008 tax season. The service, provided by expert volunteer accountants and lawyers from Community Tax Aid, Inc., is designed to help Alexandria residents file accurate IRS and Virginia individual income tax returns and to apply for all applicable credits and deductions, including the Federal Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit.
Citizens are eligible for the Tax Preparation Assistance Program if their income is below $22,000 for individuals, and below $38,000 for families. Taxpayers must bring a picture identification, W-2 forms and other income records, and records or receipts for expenses for child care, education, or any additional income. They must also provide social security cards or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) letters for all family members and a copy of last year’s tax return, if possible.
For more information about the City of Alexandria’s tax preparation sessions or to request a reasonable disability accommodation or to receive materials in an alternative format, please contact Suzanne Kratzok, at 703.519.3318 ext. 206 (703.836.1493 TTY) at least 48 hours prior to the session you wish to attend.
