Cowboy Christmas Offers Unique Gifts for NFR

The National Finals Rodeo brings in thousands of rodeo lovers who are ready to spend money.

Cowboy Christmas is one gift show that offers fans a place to shop for unique gifts. The gift show is expected to attract 140,000 people. It features 400 vendors, selling everything from clothes to saddles and high-end furniture to art work.

“It is nice. Everything is great. Anything you want to see you can see it,” shopper Kevin Colvard said.

“We always save money all year long just for this show and this year we are doing baby shopping,” added shopper Amanda Plehn.

Artist Bradford Williams is selling his work at the show. He says he never misses a chance to show off his stuff in Las Vegas.

“We've done really well. It seems like the higher end and larger and more expensive items are the ones that have been selling, and those are the ones keeping us floating,” Williams said.

IRS Offers Free Tax Help Saturday

IRS Offers Free Tax Help Saturday

Taxpayers who may have difficulty scheduling a visit to an IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center during normal weekday business hours can visit the Las Vegas office at 110 City Parkway from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday to get free tax assistance.

Help with account questions, such as collection or examination issues, is also available during Open House. In some instances, virtual assistance will be offered, as taxpayers will be assisted over the telephone by IRS employees who are working in other offices around the country. 

"We know some people are facing challenging economic times and we want to provide extra assistance on these Saturdays," IRS Spokesman Raphael Tulino said. "Our goal is to help them get what they need from the IRS."

In addition to the normal array of services, limited help preparing tax forms is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
