Texas Comptroller's Office to Offer Local Tax Help
AUSTIN — Comptroller Susan Combs’ office will offer two free seminars to assist local taxpayers with their state taxes. The first seminar is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. The seminar will be offered in Spanish on Wednesday, Sept. 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. Both seminars will take place at the Comptroller’s Brownsville Field Office, located at 1900 N. Expressway, Suite C-1.
“Operating a business has many challenges, but figuring out your taxes shouldn’t be one of them,” Combs said. “Whether you are a new taxpayer or one who has been in business for many years, this seminar will help you understand the laws that apply to you and your business.”
At the seminars, taxpayers can learn about sales tax forms, taxability issues, taxpayer responsibilities and the array of services and information available from the Comptroller’s office to assist taxpayers. Comptroller representatives will answer questions and provide assistance to attendees.
For more information about the seminars, call the Comptroller’s Brownsville Field Office at (956) 542-8426.
Those who are unable to attend the seminar can call the Comptroller’s toll-free tax assistance line at (800) 252-5555. Tax forms and tax information can also be found on the Comptroller’s Web site, www.window.state.tx.us.
