Apr 09, 2014

The Delaware Community Reinvestment Action Council Inc., will hold two Free Tax Clinic Workshops for Procrastinators in Milford and Georgetown Tuesday, April 15.

At the Milford Public Library from noon to 1:45 p.m., and at 20127 Georgetown Professional Park (across from the North Georgetown Elementary School) from 5 to 6:45 p.m., DCRAC staff will provide free counseling and answer questions from individuals about their federal taxes.

These workshops will help individuals who have received a notice from the Internal Revenue Service, haven’t filed taxes for several years, or don’t know if they are required to file a tax return.

“Many taxpayers don’t file their taxes or work on their tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service until the very last minute, so we’re holding these free tax workshops on April 15 for Delaware procrastinators,” said Rashmi Rangan, DCRAC executive director.

“When people get a letter from the IRS, all too often they never open it, or they never respond to the federal government. That’s the exact opposite of what a person should do. We’re holding our Free Tax Clinic Workshops for Procrastinators to help those who have waited until the last minute. If the problem requires additional follow up, we’ll schedule a one-on-one meeting to assist the taxpayer.”

In attendance will be bilingual staff and members of the general public.

The Delaware Community Reinvestment Action Council is a 501c3 organization whose mission is to ensure equitable treatment and equal access to credit and capital for the underserved populations and communities throughout Delaware through advocacy, education, legislation, and outreach.  DCRAC has offices in Wilmington and Georgetown.
