Free tax prep assistance program encouraged for Lumberton residents

On Friday, March 8th, Congressman Richard Hudson (NC-08) will be joined by tax industry leaders and officials from the North Carolina Department of Revenue and IRS to urge eligible North Carolinians to use the Free File program to prepare and file their taxes for free. Hudson will speak at a public briefing on the Free File program, which provides eligible taxpayers free use of name-brand tax software products through a partnership between the IRS and tax software companies.

Taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $57,000 or less in 2012 – 70% of all taxpayers – can use Free File, which not only helps people save on the cost of tax preparation, but also empowers them to claim the credits and deductions for which they are eligible.

Following the briefing, the Computer Communications Industry Association (CCIA) will hold a Free File Training workshop open to the public.
