Sen. Rocca offers free 2011 tax preparation guides

LANSING—Residents of the 10th state Senate District looking for a free tax preparation reference can obtain a copy of the latest Michigan Taxpayer’s Guide through Sen. Tory Rocca’s website.

The guide, which is a reference for the 2011 tax year, is designed to help residents prepare their tax forms.

“It is important to be accurate and thorough when filling out a tax return,” said Rocca, R-Sterling Heights. “This is not always easy, since the tax laws change every year. The Michigan Taxpayer’s Guide is a valuable resource that will make this process easier. I am happy to offer it free to residents of the 10th District.”

The booklet contains information on Michigan’s taxes and tax credits. Included is a year-long taxpayer’s calendar with reference to important tax dates and filing deadlines. Also inside are copies of the most commonly used tax forms, as well as addresses and phone numbers for obtaining state agency tax information assistance.

Free copies of the tax guides are available on Rocca’s website at
