Comptroller presents taxpayer seminars

Staff Report

Gainesville — During the month of April, the Texas Comptroller’s office will conduct 12 free taxpayer seminars across the state, including one in Denton.

At these seminars, taxpayers can learn how to properly fill out tax forms, and file and pay taxes electronically.

Information about “e-services” will also be available to help taxpayers manage their accounts online. Comptroller’s office representatives will be on hand to answer questions and provide assistance to attendees.

The seminar most local to Cooke County is set for 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, April 8, at the Denton Field Office, 400 S. Carroll Blvd., Suite 1000 in Denton. Call (972) 709-4357.

“We want to empower Texas business owners by making resources and information accessible. Conducting these seminars and making our team of tax specialists available provides guidance for businesses,” said R.J. DeSilva, spokesperson for the comptroller’s office.

The Texas Comptroller's office regularly offers sales and use tax seminars across the state throughout the year.

New taxpayers are especially encouraged to attend these overviews of tax responsibilities for buyers, sellers, and service providers. The seminars are free and no registration is required. The attendees set the pace of the seminars — and so the attendees are encouraged to bring all of your questions concerning tax rules, updates, forms and procedures.

Those who are unable to attend the seminars can still call the state comptroller’s tax assistance line at 1-800-252-5555.  Tax forms and tax information can also be found on the comptroller’s website found at www.window.state.tx.us.
