Ahead of the federal income tax filing deadline of May 17, 2021, I’m hosting a virtual information session on the 2021 federal tax season this Thursday, May 6, 2021, at 4 p.m. MT.
Experts from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Taxpayer Advocate Service, and the El Paso Central Appraisal District will be available to discuss common tax season topics like the recovery rebate credit for missed stimulus payments, answer your questions, and provide an overview of their services available to El Pasoans.
This virtual information session is free, open to the public, and Spanish-language translation will be provided through Zoom. Attendees can register and submit questions HERE, or watch live on my Facebook page.
