FREE TAX CLINIC AT STATE CAPITOL HELPS TAXPAYERS SAVE MONEY AND CLAIM VALUABLE TAX
HONOLULU, HAWAII. On Saturday February 27, 2010, from 9 am to 2 pm, IRS-certified volunteers will be in Conference Room 329, on the 3rd floor of the State Capitol, to assist taxpayers in filing their annual tax returns. For more information about the special clinic at the Hawaii State Capitol and to make an appointment, taxpayers should call 808-393-4364.
In partnership with the Hawaii Alliance for Community-Based Economic Development (HACBED) and its partner organizations, state legislators* are hosting this special tax clinic to encourage low-to-moderate income taxpayers to save money and claim valuable tax credits.
Free parking will be available at the public's blue-metered stalls in the Capitol basement. For help locating other free tax assistance sites on other dates, taxpayers can call Aloha United Way’s Helpline at 2-1-1. For a complete list of tax sites on Oahu, Big Island, Maui, and Kauai, more information about the EITC, other tax credits, and HACBED’s Family and Individual Self-Sufficiency Program, taxpayers should visit the Program’s website at www.hawaiitaxhelp.org .
