DC Congresswoman Hosts Tax Fair

WASHINGTON -- Black DC Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton will host her 11th Annual Tax and Information Fair, Saturday, February 26, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Washington Convention Center.  Robin Westbrook, a local taxpayer advocate, will provide information on taxpayer advocate services and how residents can best resolve issues with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by working directly the IRS. A resident and another IRS official will also speak. More than 120 tax professionals from the IRS and the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue will provide free tax preparation to District residents.

This service is offered to D.C. residents who file basic tax returns. There will be 40 tax preparation stations available to expedite electronic filing.

“The number of D.C. residents who attend the tax fair each year continues to grow with more than 500 in attendance last year,” said Norton. “During this economic downturn residents continue to seek ways to save their money, including giving less money to the IRS and getting more money from the federal government itself. The tax fair is often a proverbial goldmine for residents, and it’s free.”

Tax fair participants will be advised if they qualify for the First-time Homebuyer Tax Credit, Earned Income Tax Credit, Child & Dependent Care Tax Credits, and Hope and Lifetime Learning Educational Credit. Financial services will also be offered to those seeking housing and mortgage counseling and credit counseling. Testing for HIV/AIDS will be available, as at all Norton events.
