DECATUR, Ill. – To help people in the community save more on their state income taxes this coming April, state Rep. Sue Scherer, D-Decatur, is hosting a state income tax seminar on Tuesday, Feb. 13th starting 5 p.m. at the Richland Community Colleges Shilling Education Center, located at 1 College Park in Decatur.

“Everybody should come out to this event, because I bet you’ll learn something that can save you some of your hard earned money, Scherer said.” This event is free and you’ll be able to talk to tax specialists and ask them questions.”

Scherer has invited Carol Portman, President of the Taxpayers’ Federation of Illinois, and Ralph Martire, executive director of the Center for Tax and Budget Accountability, to discuss ways in which the average citizen can apply for and get a number of cost saving state tax deductions when they have to file their taxes by the April deadline.
