The Society of Louisiana Certified Public Accountants will offer free tax advice on Wednesday, March 3 via a toll-free hotline.

Spokesman Alex Suffrin stresses in a press release that 2010 is a particularly important year for filing taxes due to many new tax deductions and credits provided in the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act, the $787 billion stimulus plan enacted in 2009 by the Obama administration. Among the cost-savings in the ARRA cited by Suffrin: the Making Work Pay Credit, the American Opportunity Credit, the Residential Energy Property Credit and a sales tax deduction for vehicle purchases.

The LCPA hotline will be available from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. March 3 by calling (877) 852-1040. Find out more at the LCPA’s Web site.
