Local Taxpayers Concerned Over New Tax Rules
WESLACO - Local taxpayers are concerned over the new tax law, explaining dependent exceptions are no longer available.
Most taxpayers will qualify for a larger standard deduction; however, some may be affected by no longer being able to claim dependents.
Magdalina Oliva says she feels like something is being taken away from her.
"If I can't claim at least my son who isn't presently working, it's going to affect my taxes again," says Oliva.
KRGV’s Cecilia Gutierrez spoke to an Income Tax Preparer for Flores Tax Services. Cynthia Villa.
Villa says as the tax season goes on, she will start to see more people hurt and benefit from the new law.
