Letter: Get free help with you tax return at various venues throughout Mid-Columbia

February 20, 2013 

Free tax help

Each year, taxpayers spend money getting help with their taxes. There is free help available to all citizens of Benton and Franklin counties from Feb. 1 thru April 15. Our tax-aide volunteers are ready and eager to assist you.

We have all gone through a training program and passed the IRS certification test. We have sites set up at libraries, senior centers and community centers in the Mid-Columbia, including Benton City. All our sites are E-filing sites.

We require taxpayers bring W2s, 1099s, Social Security statements and any other applicable paperwork. Bringing last year's taxes also is a big help.

You must bring Social Security cards for taxpayers and dependents and Photo ID for taxpayers.

For locations and times, call 888-227-7669. We are looking forward to helping you with your taxes.
