EAST MOLINE, Ill. – To help ensure that taxpayers are receiving proper exemptions and credits, state Rep. Mike Halpin, D-Rock Island, will host a state income tax credit seminar on Monday, Feb. 5, at 6 p.m. at the East Moline Public Library, located at 740 16th Ave. in East Moline.
“With the new season coming up, and a new federal tax plan, it’s important that Illinois taxpayers know about these changes and any new potential ways to save money,” Halpin said. “This is a great opportunity to have the help of tax experts who can explain which credits and exemptions are available, or give information on other cost-saving methods.”
Halpin 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 how tax credits and exemptions can help residents of the Quad Cities keep more of what they earn when it comes to state taxes. This event is free and open to the public.
“Having tax experts in the Quad Cities provides an opportunity for people to ask any questions about state taxes, and to make sure that they are not missing out on any deduction that they might quality for,” said Halpin. “With so many federal changes that impact our state’s taxes, I believe this is a service that many residents could benefit from and potentially help to cut or reduce their taxes overall.”
