HOUSTON, TX – Today Texas Secretary of State (SOS) John Steen and Public Safety Commission Chair Cynthia Leon announced a partnership between the SOS and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to offer Election Identification Certificates (EIC) at 25 EIC mobile stations that will begin deploying across the state on October 1. The locations of the EIC mobile stations, which will issue EICs only, will be available on www.VoteTexas.gov.
Election Identification Certificates are available free-of-charge to qualified Texas voters who do not already have an approved form of photo ID, which is now required for voting in person.
Texans now have three convenient ways to obtain an EIC:
By visiting ANY driver license office during regular business hours;
By visiting one of nearly 50 driver license offices that are now open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. through November 2nd, specifically to issue EICs only;
And now, by visiting one of these EIC mobile stations, which will make it even more convenient for eligible Texas voters to obtain an EIC closer to home.
All applicants for an EIC will need to present proof of citizenship and identity.
Many Texans already have an approved form of ID, and will not need or qualify for an EIC.
Acceptable forms of ID in addition to an EIC are:
Texas driver license issued by DPS
Texas personal identification card issued by DPS
Texas concealed handgun license issued by DPS
United States military identification card containing the person’s photograph
United States citizenship certificate containing the person’s photograph
Why Taxes? Why Now?
"We opened up shop here in the Wylie, Sachse, Murphy area in 2018 with a passion to help start-ups and small businesses get on top of their bookkeeping,” Allen explains.
“What we found was a lot of folks just don’t get the tax game. And now that there are new laws and regulations, many are starting to panic; but trust me, small businesses have everything to gain with the new Section 179 Deductions.
“After filing a few late returns, in that first year, we learned that there is a real need for some tax expertise. We spent a good part of 2018 getting up to speed on tax law, and now I am an Enrolled Agent, federally licensed to practice before the IRS on behalf of my clients and anyone else who may be facing the daunting ‘IRS boogie man.’
“During tax season, we are prepared to handle it all.
For individuals we have helped folks with past-due tax returns and work with the IRS to eliminate all penalties... sometimes we given get rid of the tax debt itself.
For companies the biggest problem businesses of all sizes have is filing and paying their payroll taxes - both state and federal - on time. The rules for 940s and 941s are extremely confusing so we have helped a lot of companies catch up.
If they like our work, they sometimes retain us for bookkeeping and payroll.
