If you earned less than $52,000 last year, or are elderly or disabled, you qualify for free income tax return assistance that could yield a surprisingly large refund check.

The recent diatribe by Tom Patterson (Tribune, “Deferring Syria decision to Congress pure political masterstroke for the president”; Sept. 8) concerning recent events in Syria is typical of the arrogant, duplicitous, attitude exhibited by him and his ilk toward any plans by the president.
In the 2012 presidential campaign, President Obama claimed Detroit as evidence of his successful policies: “We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity and, three years later, that is paying off in a big way.”
Arizona lawmakers slashed the state's corporate tax rate in 2011, sliced other business and capital gains taxes in 2012 and just completed a major overhaul of the state's sales tax collection system.
The recent editorial “SSDI is nothing but government social welfare,” (July 29) was misleading and does not tell the full story of the disability program. The article’s central claim about who qualifies for benefits is clearly contradicted by the facts. As an advocate for people with disabilities, I know firsthand how strict the disability criteria are. Most people who apply are denied, and only about 40 percent are awarded benefits even after all stages of appeal. Many beneficiaries are terminally-illl; about 1-in-5 male and 1-in-6 female beneficiaries die within five years of receiving benefits. Literally every day, I see people with significant disabilities who have been denied benefits.

In 1912, Congress passed into law our first income tax. It was sold to the American people as a 1-percent flat tax on the wealthy. The IRS became responsible for tax collection. It soon became clear to anyone with substantial knowledge of the tax code that obtaining tax breaks for the wealthy would be a lucrative business. The tax lobbyists in Washington, D.C. were born.
This is the perfect time for Congress to take up tax reform. Simplify with a 15 percent flat tax across the board for all.

WASHINGTON — Mounting scandals at the Internal Revenue Service are jeopardizing critical funding for the agency as it gears up to play a big role in President Barack Obama's health care law.
State lawmakers were moving toward finally adjourning their 151-day session late Thursday -- but not before setting the stage for constituents to have to start paying taxes on what they buy from catalogs and on the World Wide Web.
The Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative political groups has little if anything to do with most everyday taxpayers, but some lawmakers are hoping attention to the budding scandal will swell public and political support for rewriting and simplifying a federal tax code that has undergone some 5,000 changes in the past dozen years.
Tax reform has become an important issue in dealing with the recession and job creation. There is a plan now in committee in the House of Representatives referred to as HR 25 and is fair to all Americans. It is the Fair Tax (not the Flat Tax) and is supported by the best economists in our nation. The Fair Tax is a consumption tax of 23 percent on new goods and services and would eliminate the IRS and all taxes associated with that agency such as the income tax, payroll tax, capital gains tax, the alternative minimum tax, corporate tax, estate and gift taxes. The imbedded tax of 22 percent on all new goods would also be eliminated. American workers would receive their full paycheck. The Fair Tax would bring millions of high paying manufacturing jobs back to America, boosting the economy, and improving the standard of living for the poor and middle class and eliminate tax breaks for the wealthy. The poor would pay 0% tax through a rebate program. The Fair Tax is also revenue neutral.
