The Internal Revenue Service has set March 29 as “Super Saturday” to help low-wage workers, retirees and veterans as the tax-filling deadline approaches April 15.
Here’s from a news release distributed by the IRS:
The Internal Revenue Service and scores of its partners nationwide will open hundreds of locations on Super Saturday, March 29, in an effort to reach those Americans who are eligible for the economic stimulus payment but who normally are not required to file an income tax return.
Approximately 320 IRS offices will be open on Super Saturday to prepare the simple Form 1040A for people who are filing a return solely to receive their stimulus payment. IRS partners such as AARP, United Way of America and dozens of others also are making special efforts on Super Saturday to reach out to those who normally are not required to file a tax return.
“We don’t want any Americans to miss out on their economic stimulus payment. For millions of Americans, filing a tax return is not routine. Their income is either too low or not taxable. But this year, filing a 2007 tax return is the only way to receive an economic stimulus payment. Super Saturday is one way the IRS and its partners are working to ensure everyone eligible receives a stimulus payment,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman.
There are 320 IRS offices throughout the United States and in the District of Columbia. Here’s a link to more specific information about available locations and the help that will be provided on Super Saturday.
Another resource available to lower-wage employees is the Corporate Voices-produced EITC Toolkit.
