open house sign - IRS open houseThe IRS has announced that it will be opening nearly 100 IRS offices across the country Saturday, March 26, to assist taxpayers with their tax issues.

IRS offices will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. local time and will be staffed by IRS employees. Employees will be able to assist with tax return preparation, help you resolve answers about your personal tax account and advise on other issues. You can find a list of participating offices, arranged by state, on the IRS website.IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman has said, about the open house, "We are opening our doors this Saturday to help taxpayers who may not have a chance to seek assistance during the work week. We are very focused on providing services to taxpayers when they want it, where they want it."

Last year, the IRS offered similar extended hours. According to the IRS, more than 35,000 taxpayers were able to resolve 95% of their issues at those events.

The IRS has already held a number of special events this year to assist taxpayers, including offering assistance for those taxpayers who needed help figuring the Earned Income Tax Credit. In addition, the IRS has announced that it expects to open many of its offices on two more Saturdays later this year.

How to File Taxes with IRS Form 1099-MISC

If you receive tax form 1099-MISC for services you provide to a client as an independent contractor and the annual payments you receive total $400 or more, you'll need to file your taxes a little differently than a taxpayer who only receives regular employment income reported on a W-2.

What If I Did Not File My State Taxes?

At the time of this writing, the only states that do not charge a state income tax are Alaska, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. If you live or earn money in one of the other 41 states or the District of Columbia, you may need to file a state income tax return by April 15. It is a separate and independent requirement from filing your federal tax return and failure to file it on time may result in interest and penalty charges.
