|The Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA) will host a press conference on Friday, March 27, with guest speaker Congressman Adam Smith (WA-09) at Clover Park Technical College, to remind taxpayers of the availability of a public-private partnership aimed at helping lower and moderate income Washington taxpayers - including those eligible for the Earned Income Tax Credit, active-duty military, students, and seniors - electronically prepare and e-file their federal tax return for FREE. |
The program, called the Free File Alliance, is a partnership between the IRS (http://www.irs.gov/), and the nation's electronic tax software manufacturers, including Intuit, the maker of TurboTax Freedom Edition (http://www.taxfreedom.com/).
Following the 10:00 a.m. press conference, community-based organization representatives will participate in an hour-long tax training workshop to learn how easy it is to use these programs, share ideas, and gain access to outreach materials to inform eligible taxpayers in the community.
