Comptroller’s Office Schedules Additional Free Webinar
to Help Franchise Tax Filing Go Smoothly

(AUSTIN) — An overwhelming response from franchise taxpayers has prompted Texas Comptroller Susan Combs to offer another free Webinar to help taxpayers and practitioners complete and file 2009 franchise tax reports.

Reservations are available for the newly scheduled Webinar from 10 – 11 a.m. on Friday, April 17, or the previously announced Webinar from 10 – 11 a.m. on Tuesday, April 28.

The one-hour Webinars will offer participants the opportunity to exchange real-time questions and answers with tax experts.

“Our franchise tax staff will help taxpayers work through common errors and omissions seen in last year’s tax reports,” Combs said. “New and current franchise tax filers can get some valuable help in getting their annual reports processed quicker.”

Some common errors last year pertained to deductions from revenue and filing incorrect public information reports submitted with the franchise tax return.

The Webinars will utilize Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP), which means participants don’t have to pay for long distance phone calls to hear the online presentation. The Webinars are free, but pre-registration is required. Visit the Comptroller’s Web site at www.window.state.tx.us/taxinfo/franchise/webinars_2009.html and click on the link to register for either the April 17 or April 28 Webinar.
