The National Taxpayer Advocate wants to hear from you.

National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson and Senator Bob Casey, will hold a public forum to discuss taxpayer needs and wants in Harrisburg, Penn. on Friday, April 8. This is an opportunity for you to speak and voice your needs and preferences in fulfilling your tax obligations with the IRS.

You are invited to join the public forum on Friday, April 8, at 10:00 a.m. in Harrisburg, Penn. The April 8 public forum, the fourth in a series to be held in a local community, will feature an invited panel of representatives from the small business and local taxpayer communities, including the following:

MidPenn Low Income Taxpayer Clinic
MidPenn Legal Services

Susan D. Diehl, CPC, QPA, ERPA
PenServ Plan Services, Inc.

Ms. Olson will conduct the hearing in collaboration with Senator Casey, who represents Pennsylvania in the United States Senate. Senator Casey's subcommittee is responsible for IRS oversight.

Local Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) staff will be available to talk with attendees about unresolved tax issues and help determine if their situation qualifies for TAS assistance. TAS generally is unable to assist taxpayers with return preparation questions, but can provide assistance to taxpayers who have already filed their returns with the IRS for the current or past years and are experiencing problems that meet its case-acceptance criteria.

The public forum will take place in the auditorium of the Harrisburg University of Science & Technology, 326 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17101.
