Tis The Season For Taxes

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - It's that time of year again... It's time for everyone to file their taxes.

Many people have made it one of their new years resolutions to attempt to file them early. Unfortunately that will most likely not help you this year because congress enacted new tax laws that have made it to where the Internal Revenue Service wont start processing taxes until late January.

The IRS has stated that the fastest and most accurate way to file your taxes and receive your refund is with E-File and Direct Deposit. 

Last year the average refund was deposited in about 21 days or less. Free tax sites will be opening soon that will have IRS certified volunteers to assist all who need it.

Spokane will have nine locations open that are there to assist all who make less that 50-thousand a year and are preparing their taxes electronically. These sites will be open through April 15th.

If you are planning on using one of these sites here are a few things you will need:

  • Your 2011 Tax Return
  • A Valid Picture ID
  • All Income Statements
  • Social Security Cards
  • Proof of Any Income
  • Child Care Information
  • Property Tax Information
