LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Ken Horn announced on Thursday that residents of his district who are getting ready to file their taxes and would like up-to-date information can contact his office for a free copy of the Michigan Taxpayer’s Guide 2018 or visit his website for a digital copy.

“These booklets provide a great deal of information and can assist you and your family in preparing your taxes,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “I am happy to provide these to residents of the 32nd District at no cost. Please contact my office or visit my website if you or someone you know would like a copy.”

The guide, which is a reference for the 2017 tax year, is designed to help residents prepare their state tax returns. The booklet contains information on Michigan’s income tax, property taxes and tax credits. Included is a year-long listing of important property tax dates and deadlines as well as copies of the most commonly used tax forms. The guide also features addresses, phone numbers and email information for obtaining state agency tax assistance.

It is important to note that while the guide is meant to be a helpful resource, it should not be used as a substitution for Michigan Department of Treasury tax instruction booklets.

You may also call Horn’s office at 517-373-1760 or send an email to [email protected] to request a printed copy of the guide.

Horn also wants to make residents aware of the AARP’s free tax preparation services. The AARP offers free tax preparation assistance for low to moderate income taxpayers. You don’t have to be a member and there’s no age requirement to get tax help from IRS-certified volunteers. The organization also pairs with other volunteers to provide free tax preparation assistance to those 60 and older.
