February 2020 Update from Congressman McEachin

This month I was pleased that a member of my staff could attend the American Legion meeting in Emporia. While I cannot be everywhere, it is important for my staff to be at community and organization meetings. They are my eyes and ears throughout the district and they uniformly report how much they learn from and enjoy interacting with constituents. My office and I are eager to continue to be active and involved in the community. Please let us know about any events in which we can participate and be helpful. The nature of Congress is that I spend significant time in Washington, DC, but when possible, I want to be in the district, meeting and interacting with residents. You can request my attendance or invite a staff member by filling out this form: https://mceachin.house.gov/contact/request-appearance.

I am also pleased to continue helping my constituents with federal issues. Tax season is now upon us and I know many of you, like me, are starting to think about preparing your taxes and making sure you do not miss the April 15th deadline to file. If you choose to use a professional preparer, please make sure to check their qualifications, history and ask in advance about any fees. To speed up the process, ask them to eFile and, if possible, request direct deposit for your refund. Please also consider the below helpful information before filing:

  • Active duty military members can prepare and file using brand name tax preparation software for free. This is a service provided by the IRS to thank our men and women in uniform.
  • The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who made $56,000 or less in 2019, persons with disabilities, and limited English-speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to those who qualify.
  • In addition to VITA, the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program offers free tax help for all taxpayers, particularly those who are 60 years of age and older, specializing in questions about pensions and retirement-related issues unique to seniors.

As always, if you have an issue or a problem with a federal agency, such as a missing tax return, needing a visa or passport, unreceived benefits or issues with mail delivery, my office is happy to help. Just go to my website, mceachin.house.gov, to get started.
