Philadelphia Bar Association to offer free tax advice on March 18
The Philadelphia Bar Association's Tax Section will be offering volunteer lawyers to provide free legal and tax advice to the public via telephone on Wednesday, March 18 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The pro bono service is provided by LegalLine, a public service sponsored by the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division.
“Under the new tax system that went into effect last year, taxpayers experienced numerous changes to the tax code,” said Hillary Ladov, chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, in a statement. “In order to help Philadelphia-area taxpayers navigate questions around filing this year’s tax returns, volunteer tax lawyers will be on hand to provide free, over the phone advice as we enter the height of this year’s tax season. There are changes and adjustments to the tax code year-to-year, and filers need to make sure they are prepared and can take advantage of them.”
Philadelphia-area residents can call (215) 238-6333 on March 18 to speak with a tax lawyer for free advice on this year’s tax filings and to prepare for the upcoming deadline. For more information, head to the PBA's site here.
