Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman G. K. Butterfield (NC-01) is urging district residents to take advantage of two free public events on Thursday, March 15 in Greenville.  The first event, Intuit’s Free File Tax Service, will allow low- and moderate-income district residents with basic tax returns to receive free tax preparation services from trained tax professionals.  The second event, the Facebook Small Business Boost workshop, will walk small business owners through the process of leveraging social media to promote their businesses.  Among other things, small business owners will learn how to build a presence on Facebook, reach new customers, and use online tools.

“Both of these events will provide district residents with services that will help them save and earn money,” Butterfield said.  “It is not often that these kinds of events are offered to the public free of charge.  Residents should take full advantage.”

Participants interested in the free tax preparation service are asked to bring a photo ID, W-2, IRS forms 1098 and 1099, itemized deductions, tax returns, homebuyer settlement statements, and a blank check for direct deposit.  Small business owners who plan to attend the Facebook workshop are asked to RSVP at: https:/on.fb.me/smbboost
