Volunteer tax preparation services will be available:

IRS employees will be helping people whose incomes are $40,000 or less to prepare and
electronically file their federal and state tax returns.

Taxpayers must have valid photo identification and Social Security Cards (or Individual
Taxpayer Identification Numbers) for themselves, spouses and dependents. They should
also bring this year’s tax package (if available), wage and earnings statements (Forms W-2),
interest and dividend statements (Forms 1099), a copy of last year’s return, and any other
information concerning their income and expenses for tax year 2007. For joint, e-filed
returns, both spouses must be present to sign the required forms.

Taxpayers should ensure their Form W-2, Wage Statement, will be mailed on time to the
correct address by their employers. If in doubt, their employer should be contacted. If the
employer is no longer in business or is unreachable, taxpayers should collect the employer’s
name, last known or current address (including zip code) and tax identification number and
call the IRS Help line at 1-800-829-1040 for assistance.

The IRS also reminds taxpayers that Social Security cards for every person shown on the tax
return will be required in order to receive tax help at a volunteer assistance site. They should
contact their local Social Security office for more information regarding Social Security Numbers.
