As part of a larger mission of assisting taxpayers in meeting their tax responsibilities, the District of Columbia Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR) announced today its debut on Facebook, adding this platform to its social media portfolio.
OTR’s Facebook account, http://facebook.com/OTRDC/ will provide DC taxpayers with up-to-date information on tax law changes, numerous tax relief programs, services, and initiatives.
“The addition of Facebook is another platform for OTR to share information more widely and reach additional taxpayers and tax professionals,” said Deputy Chief Financial Officer Keith J. Richardson.
Research shows that 82 percent of U.S. young adults between 18 and 24 and 79 percent of adults between 30 and 49 are active on Facebook. OTR plans to use Facebook to better serve this segment of the population, sharing content on individual income, business and real property taxes.

OTR reminds taxpayers that securing their personal and tax information is vital. When submitting a comment, personal and tax information should NOT be provided.
