Treasury Begins Income Tax Return Preparation Services

By on March 6, 2016

SAN JUAN – The assistant Treasury secretary, Víctor Pizarro, has announced that, beginning Monday, March 7, five income tax return service centers will begin operating in Puerto Rico’s major malls and that another 12 will soon open in various municipalities and on two college campuses.

“Tomorrow we begin offering free counseling and preparation of tax returns for the 2015 cycle at five shopping centers, including Plaza Las Américas, Plaza Carolina, Plaza del Caribe, Mayagüez Mall and the Outlets Mall 66, in Canovanas.

“On March 28, we will open additional centers in the municipalities of Aguadilla, Arroyo, Barceloneta, Caguas, Ceiba, Guánica, Guaynabo, Santa Isabel, Villalba, Toa Baja and also in the Bayamón and Mayagüez campuses of the University of Puerto Rico. All centers will be operating until April 15, when this tax cycle…ends,” reads the official’s Sunday statement.

To file returns at the centers, taxpayers must submit their Social Security number and date of birth, as well as those of their spouse’s and dependents. They should also have a driver’s license or valid photo ID on hand.

“Only the returns of employees and pensioners with incomes that do not exceed $150,000 will be prepared,” the official said.

He stressed it is very important that people take all the documents necessary to validate their income, deductions and credits, such as mortgage interest and interest paid on student loans and the withholding Form 499R-2/W-2 PR, known as W-2, along with a check of an account from which the amount owed will be withdrawn and where the refund will be deposited.

The centers will only accept money orders, made out to the Treasury Secretary, and debit accounts to pay taxes owed for 2015. To pay with the direct debit option, the taxpayer must present a check to verify the account’s information, as well as a photo ID.

Taxpayers may only pay with cash, personal check, ATH debit card, Visa or Mastercard at Treasury’s collection centers.

Other payment options are available by calling 787-622-2323, which allows for payment with Visa or Mastercard credit or debit cards, and savings or checking accounts by indicating the account and bank routing numbers. In this case, Treasury will send the payment’s receipt by email or regular mail, as decided by the taxpayer. One can also pay on Treasury’s website after creating a user account.
