Are you ready to do your taxes? Arizona Illustrated, seen every night at 6:30 p.m. on Channel 6, will be having its annual week of tax tips next week. Here are the details:
Arizona Public Media is teaming with The Arizona Society of Certified Public Accountants and the National Bank of Arizona to answer viewers' tax questions free of charge for Arizona Illustrated's annual "Tax Tips Week" beginning Monday, Feb. 8 and running until Thursday, Feb. 11.
During this special week a team of volunteer Arizona CPAs are answering tax questions at the National Bank of Arizona from Arizona Illustrated viewers. The hotline number is 520-584-6220 and is available from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Viewers are also invited to post their questions for the CPAs on the Arizona Public Media Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/azpublicmedia
Arizona Illustrated Tax Tips Week also features
tax-related segments and studio interviews with CPAs, including Jan Flanagan, Lori Hoby, Bill Stephens, Richard Bratt and Michael C. Flowers. Topics scheduled for discussion on Arizona Illustrated during the week include charitable giving, standard deduction changes, car and home purchases, and capital-loss carryovers.
“This is a wonderful service that we have been able to offer our viewers for almost two decades,” said Arizona Illustrated Host Bill Buckmaster.
Arizona Illustrated, Southern Arizona’s news magazine, can be seen weeknights at 6:30 p.m. on PBS-HD Channel 6, and again at 9 p.m. on PBS World channel 27.3 (Cox 83 and Comcast 203).
