The Internal Revenue Service and a group of community partners plan to open their doors on Sat., March 21, to help people who need free tax preparation services, a question answered or a payment schedule arranged.

The IRS will open more than 250 local offices from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Community partners will open approximately 1,000 sites on March 21. Tax return preparation is limited to people who earn $42,000 or less. There is no income limitation for people needing IRS assistance for other services at Taxpayer Assistance Centers.

“Because of the economic downturn, many financially distressed taxpayers may be in need of free services,” said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman in a statement. “Our Super Saturday service will make it a little easier for people to get that help.”

Locations and hours of operation of Super Saturday sites are available at IRS.gov, via the keyword Super Saturday. People without computer access can call (800) 906-9887 to find a nearby IRS office or partner office. IRS customer service telephone lines at (800) 829-1040 also will be available on Super Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to answer tax questions.
