State Sen. LeAnna Washington (D-Montgomery/Philadelphia) will be teaming with the Financial Freedom Network to present a series of free Tax Planning Seminars and Tax Preparation Services.


“Tax preparation can be quite a daunting task,” Washington said. “That is why I am pleased to offer these information seminars and tax preparation services to help those in need of guidance.”


Thane C. Martin, Certified Public Accountant, will be on hand to teach:


  • Strategies to Reduce Your Tax Burden
  • What It Means to Be “Audited by the IRS”
  • What Deductions You Qualify For
  • How Filing for Bankruptcy Affects your Taxes & More


For those who have already filed their 2010 taxes, there will be information on how to save money in the future. For constituents from low-income households, there will be an IRS-trained tax preparer on hand to help file their taxes for free. There is limited seating for these events. To make a reservation for the Tax Planning Seminar and/or schedule tax preparation services, constituents are urged to contact Sen. Washington’s office at 215-242-0472.
