PLANO, TX – To help Collin County constituents save their hard-earned dollars during tax season, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) will be joining Free File Alliance for a briefing and “Free File” tax workshop.  The event is free and open to the public. 

The briefing will highlight the IRS “Free File” program, which provides free online tax-prep and e-filing services to taxpayers who earned an annual income of $62,000 or less in 2015.  Following the briefing, there will be a one hour interactive demonstration to see how easy it is to use “Free File” and learn about other free tax services in the community.

“As a fiscal conservative, I want to do everything I can to help folks navigate the cumbersome tax filing process and keep money in their pocketbooks,” said Johnson.  “I look forward to a productive meeting, and I also encourage folks who need any other assistance with the IRS to please call my Plano office at (469) 304-0382.  My staff and I are always happy to help!”
