The Tucson IRS office will be open on two upcoming Saturdays to help filers who qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit.

The office, at 300 W. Congress St., will be open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Feb. 21. Spanish speakers will be available.

The Earned Income Tax Credit is a refundable credit for people who work but do not make a lot of money. To qualify for the credit, a taxpayer must meet minimum income standards, have a valid Social Security number, have earned income and must file a tax return. More detailed information is available at irs.gov or 800-829-1040.

For IRS assistance, bring: photo identification for yourself (and your spouse); Social Security cards for each person listed on the tax return; all wage and earnings statements (W-2 forms); interest and dividend statements (Forms 1099 or 1098); a copy of last year’s tax return and any other information concerning income and expenses for 2008. If filing jointly, both spouses must be present to sign the required forms.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
