If you want some free help filing your taxes this year, you’ll find it in quite a few places — including Canton on Wednesday.
The Computer & Communications Industry Association is hosting a free tax training workshop on Wednesday with Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) to highlight the IRS and Georgia Free File programs.
Now in its ninth year, the IRS Free File Alliance is a partnership between the IRS and 16 electronic tax software companies to provide free online federal tax preparation and e-filing to lower- and moderate-income taxpayers (you had to make less than $58,000 in 2010 to qualify).
Twenty-one state tax agencies, including the Georgia Department of Revenue have formed similar partnerships enabling eligible taxpayers to electronically prepare and file both their federal and states taxes for free. Hundreds of thousands of Georgia are eligible for this service.
Following the 10:30 a.m. briefing, participate in a tax training workshop from 11:00 a.m. to noon to learn how easy it is to use the online Free File software. R.T. Jones Memorial Public Library, 116 Brown Industrial Parkway, Canton.
