Free file tax seminar presented at Collin College

To help Collin County constituents save their hard-earned dollars during tax season, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson  will be joining Free File Alliance for a briefing and free file tax workshop. The event is free and open to the public.

The briefing will highlight the IRS Free File program, which provides free online tax-prep and e-filing services to taxpayers who earned an annual income of $62,000 or less in 2015. Following the briefing, there will be a one hour interactive demonstration to see how easy it is to use Free File and learn about other free tax services in the community.

“As a fiscal conservative, I want to do everything I can to help folks navigate the cumbersome tax filing process and keep money in their pocketbooks,” said Johnson. “I look forward to a productive meeting, and I also encourage folks who need any other assistance with the IRS to please call my Plano office at 469-304-0382. My staff and I are always happy to help!”

The free file alliance tax seminar will be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Thursday, March 14 in Room I 123 at the Spring Creek Campus of Collin College, located at  2800 E. Spring Creek Pkwy.
