If you have some tax issues that you’ve been meaning to get around to but haven’t found the time, Saturday may be your day to get things straightened out.

The IRS has planned Solution Saturday this weekend to help taxpayers get their financial affairs in order.

“We are opening our doors on Nov. 7 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. to assist taxpayers with a wide range of personalized tax assistance.

Solution Saturday will bring together IRS employees from across the agency to work face-to-face with taxpayers to address tax issues.

Our goal is to reach as many people as possible,” said Mark S. Green, IRS spokesperson.

“Taxpayers are encouraged to schedule appointments, however, people without appointments can walk into a site and get tax help as soon as possible when they arrive.”

The event is designed to help taxpayers with a variety of issues that can create complex tax issues, including foreclosure, bankruptcy, recent floodings and even past-due tax returns.

In addition to personalized attention, IRS employees will also have booths set up giving out information about new tax credits created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, starting a new business, dealing with difficult tax issues and navigating various IRS programs, Green said.

Tax preparation will also be available.

“Taxpayers seeking return preparation should bring certain documents to substantiate their income, deductions, credits, dependents, etc.,” said Green.

“These documents include valid photo ID, Social Security cards for all persons listed on the return, dates of birth for all person on return, all income statements and any other pertinent documents.”

If residents can not make it to the event, information is also available on the IRS’ Web site.
