WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will be awarding more than $362,000 to seven Ohio outreach organizations across the state.
“These funds will ensure that working families have access to important tax resources,” said Brown. “I encourage Ohioans to take advantage of our state’s outreach centers and the critical services that they provide.”
All seven Ohio organizations provide free or nominal cost services ranging from legal defense to tax education and outreach. They are beneficiaries of the IRS matching grant program that funds up to $100,000 each year to qualifying organizations.
The IRS provides advocacy services that should serve as the first point of contact for tax related questions and resources. More information about IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service can be found on the IRS Web site here.
