ALEXANDRIA - The Department of Revenue''s Alexandria Regional Office, 900 Murray Street, Alexandria, is now open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, according to Regional Director Joe Vaughn.

Vaughn says that half of his staff is now working "flex-time." This means they come in a half-hour earlier at 7:30 a.m. and leave at 4:00 p.m. The other half of his staff works the regular office hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This means that the state incurs no overtime costs in order to provide this convenience to taxpayers.

The extra half-hour each day makes it more convenient for taxpayers that need to visit the office for assistance. He adds that this is especially helpful to them during individual income tax season when they may need copies of tax forms or help filling out the forms. The office may be contacted by telephone at (318) 487-5333.
