Sen. Marleau offers free tax preparation guides

LANSING—Residents of the 12th state Senate District looking for tax preparation information can obtain a free copy of the 2013 Michigan Taxpayer’s Guide by visiting Sen. Jim Marleau’s website, the lawmaker said Wednesday.

The guide, which is a reference for the 2012 tax year, is designed to help residents prepare their state tax returns.

“Tax laws change every year, which can present a real challenge when filling out your returns,” said Marleau, R-Lake Orion. “That’s why this free preparation guide is such a useful tool. I am happy we have made it available again for residents of the 12th District.”
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.

Marleau added that the guide is meant as a helpful resource and not as a substitute for Michigan Department of Treasury tax instruction booklets.

Residents can contact Marleau’s office at 517-373-2417 to reserve a free copy.
