Sen. Isakson to speak at free tax prep program


ATLANTA - On Monday, April 8, Senator Johnny Isakson will urge eligible Georgians to use the Free File program to prepare and file their taxes for free. Senator Isakson 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. The briefing is free and open to the public.

Taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $57,000 or less in 2012 - 70 percent 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.
