Some last minute tax help is available for procrastinators in Milford and Georgetown Tuesday afternoon.

Well, you’ve done it. You waited until the final hours of the season to get your tax forms filled out and filed. While Delaware taxes may not be due until April 30, federal forms are due by April 15.

It’s the last minute procrastinator that the Delaware Community Reinvestment Action Council hopes to help during a pair of workshops in Milford and Georgetown on Tuesday. “Many taxpayers don’t file their taxes or work on their tax controversies with the Internal Revenue Service until the very last minute,” said DCRAC executive director Rashmi Rangan.

A common reaction for people who may have run into tax trouble is to ignore it. “When people get a letter from the IRS, all too often they never open it, or they never respond to the federal government,” Ragan said. “That’s the exact opposite of what a person should do.”

The tax clinics will be led by DCRAC’s tax clinic director Rony Peralta, who will be assisted by bilingual staff members. The first clinic will be held at the Milford Public Library from noon to 1:45 p.m. The second clinic will be held at DCRAC’s office at 20127 Office Circle in Georgetown from 5 to 6:45 p.m.
