SAN PEDRO, Calif., March 12 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — If you don’t have a Social Security number but still owe Uncle Sam a tax return, Tri Tax Income Tax Service will prepare a W-7 form for you at no charge. That’s right — free!
“For many hardworking people without a Social Security number, the process of obtaining an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) is confusing and expensive,” says Tri Tax Founder and CEO Carlos Marquez. “Tri Tax makes this overwhelming process effortless by preparing a W-7 form for as many ITINs as requested. Other tax preparers charge up to $100 per W-7 application, but we offer this service absolutely free. We’re committed to the Latino community, and this is just one way we can demonstrate that commitment.”
An ITIN is an official tax processing number issued by the Internal Revenue Service for people without a Social Security number, and it’s available regardless of an individual’s immigration status. A W-7 is an application form to request an ITIN.
Marquez says that many Spanish-speaking people run into a language barrier when trying to work with other tax preparation companies, and, in defeat, fail to file tax forms. “But at Tri Tax, we literally speak their language, and with the free W-7 service, we help people fulfill their obligation to the government in a stress-free environment.”
Even if individuals have a Social Security number of their own, Marquez says some people seek ITINs for family members in Mexico. “Many taxpayers have relatives that they support in Mexico, and by obtaining an ITIN and claiming them on their tax return, they could be entitled to a larger tax refund. With the current economy, every little bit counts, so I encourage people to stop in to Tri Tax today and learn about how our free W-7 service could help them.”
